Sanders: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Out as DNC Chair If I Win

Bernie Sanders' campaign has been complaining over the past week that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been working for Hillary Clinton and against him, and Sanders says in an upcoming CNN interview that he favors her challenger for the the House seat she holds and won't reappoint her to chair the Democratic National Committee if he's elected president.

"Clearly, I favor her opponent," the Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate told Jake Tapper about the Florida representative's challenger, law professor Tim Canova. "His views are much closer to mine than are Wasserman Schultz's."

Also, said Sanders in the interview, to be shown in full on CNN's "State of the Union" program Sunday morning, he wanted to say that in "all due respect" to Wasserman Schultz, "she would not be reappointed to be chair of the DNC."

This past week, Sanders Campaign Manager Jeff Weaver told CNN that the DNC chairperson was "throwing shade" on Sanders' campaign, and her actions seemed more personal than along party lines.

Wasserman Schultz and other party leaders called for an apology after Sanders supporters in last weekend's Nevada convention "shouted down pro-Clinton speakers and sent threatening messages to state party Chairwoman Roberta Lange after posting her phone number and address on social media," CNN reported.

Sanders had condemned the fracas, and Weaver told CNN that the Vermont senator's campaign believes the Democratic Party is pulling for Clinton to win the primary race.
