Forget Tim Canova. Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants to run against Donald Trump

From the fliers she's mailed Democratic voters, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a single political target in mind. And it's not her primary opponent, Tim Canova.

It's Donald Trump.

"Donald Trump is an egomaniac," declares the front of one of Wasserman Schultz's re-election campaign mailers. "He only cares about himself and his ideas are dangerous for America."

Flip the page, and there's Wasserman Schultz: greeting a senior, talking to students, posing with President Barack Obama.

"I am proud to lead the fight against a radical, hateful agenda that would turn back the clock on our progress," she says.

Another piece shows a black-and-white photo of Trump next to a full-color, smiling Wasserman Schultz: "When Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz takes on Donald Trump...she's in good company." Cue photos of Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

But it's Canova who's been fundraising like mad since Wasserman Schultz's fall from the Democratic National Committee last week. And there's no mention of him anywhere.

Take a look at the mailers:
