Wasserman-Schultz: Dems Won't Have a Contested Convention

The growing battle and rhetoric between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders aren't a sign that the Democratic Party won't unify when it comes to voting this fall, and there won't be a contested convention this summer, Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said Friday.

"It's totally understandable this has gotten a little more tense, and the exchanges might be a little more heated," Wasserman-Schultz told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. "But when you compare the tenor of our debates ... and the civil war that continues to rage on the Republican side, I'm not worried about us coming back together."

Meanwhile, Wasserman-Schultz said that both campaigns need to be careful not to do lasting damage to the Democratic Party with their attacks, but matters have not come to that point yet.

"I think it is important to be careful that at the end of the primary process when we have a presumptive nominee we are able to easily reunify," she said. "We were in the same place eight years ago between Sen. [Barack] Obama and Hillary Clinton and we came back together."

And that means there won't be a contested convention like the one expected for the Republicans this summer.

"I expect when we get to the end of our primary nominating contest, we'll have a presumptive nominee before we get to the convention, who will be the presumptive nominee based on pledge delegates selected by voters," Wasserman-Schultz said, after earlier in the interview declining to "handicap" the candidates. "That's how I expect it to be."
