Wasserman Schultz On Why Obama Seems To Be Ignoring North Carolina: ‘This Is A Big Country’

During an interview with a local North Carolina news station, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked why President Barack Obama has not traveled to the Tar Heel State in several weeks. “This is a big country,” was Wasserman Schultz’s reply.

Wasserman Schultz traveled to North Carolina to rally college students to support President Obama this week. When asked why the president himself has not traveled to the Tar Heel State in several weeks, Wasserman Schulz reminded reporters that first lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have made recent appearances in North Carolina.

“This is a big country,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign made news over the week when they announced they were pulling resources out of North Carolina and repositioning them elsewhere in more heavily contested battlegrounds. The move signals that the Romney campaign is comfortable that this state would vote for the Republican presidential candidate in November.
