Bernie Sanders said on Sunday that Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be gone from her job as the Democratic National Committee chair if he becomes president, reported CNN.

Sanders, battling as a surprisingly strong underdog against Hillary Clinton, has repeatedly criticized Wasserman Schultz's performance as party chair and now has come out in favor of her opponent in her re-election bid for House of Representatives race.

"Let me also say this, in all due respect to the current chairwoman, if elected president she would not be reappointed to be chairman of the DNC," Sanders told CNN's "State of the Union," noted The Wall Street Journal.

Tim Canova, a law professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, is challenging Wasserman Schultz in the Democratic primary for her Florida District 23 congressional seat, noted CNN.

"Well, clearly, I favor her opponent," Sanders said on "State of the Union." "His views are much closer to mine than as to Wasserman Schultz's."

Sanders continued his attack against Wasserman Schultz on CBS's "Face The Nation," saying that his feelings for her were not personal and that the party's establishment served the wealthy.

"Do I think she is the kind of chair the Democratic Party needs? I don't," Sanders said.

The Hill noted on Sunday that Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver has started to ask supporters to help fund Canova's campaign.

"We're doing this because it is too late for establishment politics and establishment economics," Weaver said in a fundraising email. "We need real change. We need U.S. senators, members of Congress and state legislators who have the guts to take on the big money interests whose greed is destroying the American middle class. Tim Canova is one of those candidates, and I hope you'll join Bernie in support of his campaign."

"We can have a long conversation about Debbie Wasserman Schultz, just about how she's been throwing shade on the Sanders campaign from the very beginning," Weaver previously told CNN. "It's not the DNC. By and large, people in the DNC have been good to us. Debbie Wasserman Schultz really is the exception."
