The Top 12 Berniecrats Running in 2016 – Tim Canova 23rd Congressional District in Florida

“As the primary opponent of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Tim Canova is far from a protest candidate or just a pretty face. He is a lawyer and professor and has been a nationally recognized voice on financial issues since the 1980’s. He has both the clout to have been named to a Federal Reserve advisory council alongside Robert Reich and Joseph Stiglitz, and the progressive chops to have taught impromptu classes at Occupy. Make no mistake, Tim Canova is not merely trying to shine a light on the perceived corruption of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. He wants to get rid of it — and her.”
