DNC chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” on Sunday that President Barack Obama has won Florida, thanks to early voters and the campaign’s “strong ground game.”
Wasserman Schultz, who represents a Florida district in Congress, called the state for Obama in part because of absentee ballot figures.
“We cut the absentee ballot advantage of Republicans by 85 percent,” Wasserman Schultz said. “If you go to Saturday last week, they had 36,000 absentee ballots when normally they had more than 200,000 absentee ballots more than us. When early voting ended yesterday, combined between absentee balloting and early votes cast, we have 104,000 more Democrats as of Friday that have cast ballots.”
“We have really run circles around them due to a very strong effective ground game,” Wasserman Schultz added. “There’s been an explosive turnout of Democrats in major counties. Just yesterday we had single day records in major counties around the state of Florida.”
