President Barack Obama will endorse Debbie Wasserman Schultz for a second term as Democratic National Committee chief, a Democratic official tells Politico.
"Because of the outstanding job she has done, the President will ask the members of the Democratic National Committee to ratify his choice of [Rep.] Debbie Wasserman Schultz to continue leading the Party as Chair when they meet in January," an anonymous "senior Democratic official" tells Mike Allen. "The DNC will meet [in Washington on Jan. 22], the day after President Obama is sworn in for a second term, with the primary item of business being electing party officers, including the DNC Chair."
Allen also points to the fact that Obama won Wasserman Schultz's home state of Florida in the 2012 presidential election.
