Dems so desperate they make Debbie Wasserman Schultz a raffle prize; response is hilarious

Democrats in Florida, the third largest state in the country, and the hands-down largest state that’s a true battleground in presidential politics, are in a blue funk.

As Nancy Smith at Sunshine State News observed, the Florida Democratic Party is having a real problem filling seats at the annual $250 a plate Leadership Blue Gala scheduled for June 13 at the Diplomat in Hollywood.

Thinking it may be the B-list pair of speakers the organizers chose — Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia — organizers thought they could sweeten the deal by adding U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

(Only a Democrat could think Elijah Cummings could be a crowd pleaser, but a guy who spends his time carrying water for the Obama White House covering up for the IRS and Benghazi, among other things, must be a fan favorite in certain circles.)

They also threw in, to great fanfare, the chance to spend the evening with Florida Congresswoman and National Democratic Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

But if some of the reply tweets are any indication, this offer didn’t produce the desired effect.

Then again, maybe the lackluster response is because Florida Democrats have so very little to celebrate. As Smith observed:

If you don’t count Sen. Bill Nelson’s victory three years ago, Florida Democrats have a winning stable of what? Two? U.S. Reps. Gwen Graham and Patrick Murphy are as high as I can count. Better maybe to celebrate because 2014 is good and over. More
