Dem Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz to visit Youngstown

Published: Wed, September 12, 2012 @ 12:06 a.m.

By David Skolnick



Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will come to Youngstown on Saturday to speak to local President Barack Obama campaign volunteers and supporters.

Schultz, who also is a four-term U.S. House member from southern Florida, will meet at 10 a.m. with volunteers and supporters at 25 W. Federal St., Obama’s downtown Youngstown campaign office.

Schultz will “thank them for their service to the campaign and what they’re doing to spread the message about the clear choice in this election for moving the country forward,” said Jessica Kershaw, an Obama campaign spokeswoman.

After Schultz’s remarks, volunteers will go door-to-door in the Youngstown area campaigning for the re-election of Obama, the Democratic incumbent.

Schultz is likely to make at least one other appearance Saturday in the Mahoning Valley.

Additional details will be released later this week by the Obama campaign.

Schultz, who has raised millions of dollars for national Democrats, has risen quickly in the party’s hierarchy. She was named chief deputy whip, a leadership position, in her second term in the U.S. House.

Obama selected her in 2011 to be the head of the DNC, only the third woman to hold that job. The DNC is the Democratic Party’s main political organization with its primary focus on electing Democrat candidates.

Wasserman-Schultz has sped away and left timmie ryan in her dust. Maybe timmie should stick to party planning for Pelosi.

I hope she talks about how the national debt, unemployment ,welfare rolls, and gas prices are coming down. Maybe taking a stroll by herself on the lovely southside at night and see how Obama's jobs program has helped. On second thought what jobs program. The only shovel ready jobs are the grave diggers burying the victims of crime. Hey blabbermouth did you know that the middleclass has shrunk under Obama? Could you imagine how it will be in another 4 years of Obama. I feel sorry for our children and grand children who will have to pay somehow for all of this mess.

I hope the "volunteers" don't knock on the door of a Delphi retiree.
