WASHINGTON, May 22 (UPI) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said he supports the Democratic National Committee’ chair’s opponent in the Aug. 30 congressional primary in South Florida.
Sanders said in an interview Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union that he favors Tim Canova in Florida’s 23rd congressional district over Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Schultz serves in the U.S. House of Representatives and is the Democratic Party chair.
“Well, clearly, I favor her opponent,” Sanders told Jake Tapper. “His views are much closer to mine than as to Wasserman Schultz’s.”
