DNC chairwoman: GOP candidates ‘worshipping at the altar of the Tea Party’

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said Tuesday that in Monday night’s GOP presidential debate she saw “Republican candidates for president worshipping at the altar of the Tea Party.”

The DNC chairwoman appeared on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” saying she hopes for bipartinsan approval of President Obama’s jobs plan.

“I know that sounds odd coming from the chair of the Democratic National Committee, but I really believe that we can and should work together,” she said.

The debate was hosted by CNN and Tea Party Express.
