David says the big takeaway today was DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz explaining her call for Rep. Anthony Weiner's resignation, but acknowledging ultimately it's the congressman's decision. Also, find out why there's an Alex Ovechkin figurine next to a miniature Stanley Cup on the MTP set.
This morning, the chairs of the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee joined me for their first televised debate - just one day after Dems put forth a coordinated effort to call on Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) to resign.
Earlier this month, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) called the Weiner scandal a "personal matter," but today she continued her call for the congressman to step down. "I made that statement before it had been revealed that Anthony had not been truthful," Waserman Schultz told me.
Reince Priebus, chair of the RNC, was quick to criticize Democrats for not immediately calling for Weiner's resignation. Of course, Wasserman Schultz countered with the various ethical violations of his party. You can see the entire debate on our website.
Also this morning, our "Meet The Candidates" series continued with Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA). I asked him about some of the rhetoric he's been using on the campaign trail, his plans for the economic future of the country, and education. He also told me "I would advocate that any doctor who performs an abortion should be criminally charged for doing so." It's not a new view from Santorum, but look for the quote to pick up some steam as the campaign progresses.
