Progressives blast Florida Democratic Party on behalf of Wasserman-Schultz’s challenger

A dispute over access to voter data in a South Florida congressional race is highlighting a divide between the Florida Democratic Party and its progressive caucus.

For the second time this month, leaders of the progressive caucus are openly criticizing their party leaders, this time on behalf of Debbie Wasserman Schultz‘s primary opponent.

But the caucus’ complaints were immediately rendered moot, though, because — unbeknownst to them and independent of their grievances — Florida Democratic Party leaders already agreed to make a special exception that addresses critics’ concerns.

The controversy stems from a decision by party leaders earlier this month to deny Wasserman Schultz’s challenger, Democrat Tim Canova, access to its voter database.
