Wassmeran Schultz is in the midst of one of the most difficult periods of her political career. She resigned her position as chairwoman of the DNC last month after hacked emails revealed she and other party officials openly worked against Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I., Vt.) presidential bid, despite her claims she was running a neutral process.
After she resigned, Clinton expressed support and announced Wasserman Schultz would serve as an honorary chair in her 50-state campaign.
Now, she faces a well-funded primary challenge from Tim Canova, who has been endorsed by Sanders. Canova filed an FEC complaint against Wasserman Schultz on Monday, alleging she used DNC resources to improperly benefit her own campaign. The two are looking for a time to debate before the Aug. 30 primary. Canova has accused her of dodging the debate as an attempt to hold onto her lead in the polls.
