Wasserman Schultz to Step Down as DNC Chair

On the eve of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced she would resign at the end of the convention.

In a statement laying out the goals of this election cycle she wrote:

"The best way for me to accomplish those goals is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention," she said. "As Party Chair, this week I will open and close the Convention and I will address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans."
