As expected, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, continues as DNC chair

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who criss-crossed the country in support of President Obama during the 2012 presidential campaign, will continue in her job as chairperson of the powerful Democratic National Committee.

Wasserman Schultz, a Broward Democrat, announced her acceptance of the job in a series of tweets Tuesday from her Twitter account.

"Today I proudly accepted the nomination to stay on as DNC chair—to continue what we do best: out-work and out-organize our way to victory.

"Together, we will harness the energy, enthusiasm, and strategy that defined our campaign and channel that momentum into #progress.

"We’re going to keep building the country we’ve been fighting for from day one—where the American Dream is truly within reach for everyone.

"We will move #forward, with common effort and common purpose, with passion and dedication to help create a better America.
