While Hilary Clinton may still be basking in the glory of her huge win over Bernie Sanders last night in South Carolina, this morning’s news might be a bit of a buzzkill.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schulz can’t be happy about this, either.
Little Debbie’s vice chair of the DNC, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, stunned many this morning by announcing she will resign her DNC post so that she can endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. Wouldn’t you have loved to see DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schulz’s face when she found out?
Via NBC News:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in his bid to become President of the United States this morning on “Meet the Press.” She also resigned as Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee. Just last month, she said she couldn’t take sides due to her position with the DNC.
Gabbard specifically pointed to Sanders’ position on military intervention as part of her endorsement reasoning.
“As a veteran, as a soldier, I’ve seen firsthand the true cost of war. … As we look at our choices as to who our next Commander-in-chief will be is to recognize the necessity to have a Commander-in-chief who has foresight. Who exercises good judgment. Who looks beyond the consequences — who looks at the consequences of the actions that they are willing to take before they take those actions. So that we don’t continue to find ourselves in these failures that have resulted in chaos in the Middle East and so much loss of life,” Gabbard said.
You may recall Rep. Gabbard was a strong voice against DNC Chair Debbie Wassmerman-Schulz’s Democrat debate schedule, which many believe was designed to favor Hillary Clinton — who is widely known as the favorite of the Democrat establishment in general and Debbie Wasserman Schulz in particular.
Apparently, the GOP isn’t the only party that has some widening cracks developing.
