*The super-PAC founded by GOP operative Karl Rove on Tuesday mocked Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-Fla.) leadership as a boon to Republicans and “endorsed” her reelection bid.

American Crossroads said Wasserman Schultz’s management has led to electoral gains for Republicans and more tension among Democrats.

“Congresswoman and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has played a critical role over the past several years in the massive Republican gains we have achieved at the state level, in the U.S. House of Representatives, and in the U.S. Senate,” Crossroads President and CEO Steven Law said in a statement.

"Wasserman Schultz’s leadership has also been a catalyst for the emerging civil war in the Democratic Party this year, ensuring that their nominating process will drag on far longer than that of Republicans,” he added.

The GOP group is backing her over her insurgent primary challenger Tim Canova.

"Voters of the 23rd District of Florida should know — American Crossroads stands with Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in her primary against ultra-liberal outsider Tim Canova, and they should too.”

The political action committee issued its endorsement three days after Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders threw his support behind Canova amid continued tension between the Sanders campaign and the DNC.

“Well, clearly, I favor her opponent,” Sanders told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview Sunday. “His views are much closer to mine than as to Wasserman Schultz."

The chairwoman said she will remain neutral in the presidential race between Sanders and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton despite the Vermont senator’s endorsement.*

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Challenger Has a Chance
Thousands of Democrats want the DNC chair to resign. Populist Timothy Canova has another idea.

During the presidential primary, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has managed the impressive feat of angering virtually every liberal in America. Bernie Sanders supporters think she displays a transparent bias for Hillary Clinton. Party stalwarts, including Clinton fans, criticize the decision to hide primary debates on weekend nights, ceding hours of free media time to Republicans in the formative stages of the election. And in a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine, Wasserman Schultz insulted millennial women for being “complacent” about abortion rights. This is an incomplete list.

In two separate petitions, more than 94,000 people have demanded that Wasserman Schultz resign as DNC chair. But back in her district, in Hollywood, Florida, Timothy Canova has another idea: vote her out of office.

Sounds like the kiss of death.

“No one thinks she’s doing a good job but she won’t step down and getting rid of her is a big task that at the end of the day always seems like more trouble than it’s worth,” a senior Democratic aide added. “The feeling among those who want a change is that having her preside over the convention makes it much, much harder to resolve the rift between now and then, or potentially after.”

Republicans should always support fellow conservatives. They should never support liberals.
