Addressing Jewish Democrats, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) praised the performances of Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren in the first Democratic presidential debates, held on June 26 and 27.

“They both had an opportunity to shine and they took advantage of it,” Schultz, the former chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), said of Harris of California, and Warren of Massachusetts during a June 28 phone call convened by the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA). “They spoke with passion, with empathy and … moral authority and brought ideas to the table.”
