Holding a national gathering of state Democratic leaders on the same weekend as a Louisiana Senate runoff election in which the Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu was all but guaranteed to lose was an odd choice.
But to imply that “voters agree with us,” as Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz did Friday, the day before Landrieu got slaughtered, borders on bizarre.

Nevertheless, Wasserman Schultz insisted that voters agree with Democrats and that her party is “right on the issues.”
“We know that where you could see by referendum the questions like increasing the minimum wage, like equal pay for equal work, like making sure that women’s health care was not unnecessarily restricted, Democratic policies were supported by voters and Republican policies were rejected,” she told reporters on Friday, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“We have evidence, by voter turnout and election results, that voters do agree with us on that.”
