U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney of Palm Beach Gardens, who has laid low during the Democratic primary and declined to take sides, had an unexpected outpouring of emotion tonight:
"I am disappointed by the DNC’s decision not to ratify the results of Florida’s primary election and seat the delegates as elected with full rights. The DNC's decision ignores the will of Florida Democrats who went to the polls in record numbers..."
In contrast, hardcore Hillary Clintonite U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston seemed surprisingly at peace with the resolution of the delegate dispute:
"While I am disappointed with the DNC Rules Committee’s decision to seat Florida’s delegation with a 50% penalty, I am pleased they agreed that Florida should have a delegation at the Democratic National Convention, based on the outcome of our primary on January 29th...The Democratic nominee should be selected by voters in all 50 states and this decision ensures that will happen.”
