MSNBC "Decision 08" - Interview


Location: Unknown

MS. MITCHELL: I'm here with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the congresswoman, who was a strong Clinton supporter and gave one of the seconding nominating speeches of Barack Obama, as (glasnost ?) breaks out all over the floor.

Here we are. Bill Clinton tonight -- did he do enough to bring all of those reluctant voters in Florida, those Clinton supporters, over?

REP. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: He did. He laid out just how much is at stake and helped lay the groundwork for the vision that Barack Obama will talk about for the country tomorrow night. He left absolutely no doubt about where he would be. Hillary did the same thing last night. And we're going to be fired up and ready to go for the rest of the general election cycle.

MS. MITCHELL: Does this make it easier for you in selling your people back home?

REP. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: It really does. We have President Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, all of whom are wildly popular in my home state, and they are going to be a one-two-three punch all across our state to make sure we can turn Florida blue.

MS. MITCHELL: Briefly, can Barack Obama win Florida?

REP. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Barack Obama will win Florida. It's one of the 18 battleground states. They're going to have an unprecedented amount of resources in our state; grassroots second to none. We are going to win Florida on November 4th.

MS. MITCHELL: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, one of those rising stars of the Democratic Party, thank you very much.
