Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is after former Democratic Party head Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Sanders has sent at least two emails to supporters in Florida, looking to oust Schultz from her House spot in an Aug. 30 primary, according to the Washington Post. Her opponent, Tim Cnova, is behind by 8 to 10 points in local polls.
“This race is very important for Our Revolution,” Sanders wrote in an email sent Tuesday afternoon. “If we can win this tough fight in Florida, it will send a clear message about the power of our grassroots movement that will send shockwaves through the political and media establishments.”
He is continuing a battle with Schultz, and the Democratic establishment, that began early in the presidential primary.
Wasserman Schultz resigned from her position at the DNC shortly before the Democratic convention last month, when leaked emails revealed that some in the party had conspired against Sanders during the primary.
“The recent emails leaked from Democratic Party staff showed that under Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC staff were not exactly fair and even-minded during the presidential primary,” Sanders wrote in his email blast.
