On May 4, 2011 Democratic National Committee (DNC) At-Large member and National Jewish Democratic Council Vice-Chair of Development Stephen Bittel delivered one of the nominating speeches on behalf of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), who was confirmed as the new chair of the DNC. Bittel’s full remarks can be viewed here. An excerpt appears below.
President Barack Obama really got a hit when he asked Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to serve as Chair of our Democratic National Committee. In fact, I think he knocked it right out of the park.
I can say this with confidence because I know this woman - I have seen her passion, her commitment, her tireless work. I have gotten her phone calls, her texts, and her emails at all hours of the day and night. This is a person who never stops thinking, never stops dreaming, and never stops working to move our country forward.
So all of us in South Florida are more than willing to share our Congresswoman with you, because we could not imagine a more outstanding, or qualified person to help re-elect President Obama and move America forward. I think we can all imagine a stronger country-a country with the best education system, the most robust economy, the most opportunity, innovation and growth - and I think we can all agree that Debbie Wasserman Schultz will help President Obama get us there.
