I called it ‘misplaced desire’ because Debbie Wasserman Schultz is turning out to be the kind of DNC chair that Republicans like: which is to say, incompetent – and loud about. So very, very, very loud… but, fortunately, there’s no real indication yet that this Shark Tank report that DWS may not run for re-election. I predict that if she does do so then Wasserman Schultz will probably not resign; at this point the expense of a second election for the rest of DWS’s term* would be an annoyance, and Florida is already enough of a headache for the Democratic party.
Then again, this assumes that DWS is thinking of anybody except herself, so if she plans to retire she might just cut and run at the same time anyway.
*Article I, Section 2. “When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies.” And I don’t think that Rick Scott would pull a David Paterson and schedule the special election for the same date as the general.
