Democrats re-elect Wasserman Schultz to head party

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was re-elected Tuesday to another term as Democratic National Committee chairman.

The unanimous vote came at an exuberant DNC meeting at a Washington hotel a day after President Barack Obama's inaugural celebration.

She made it clear in a speech after the vote that her mission and Obama's are the same. "The president has laid out his vision," Wasserman Schultz said. "We must give him the tools to succeed."

Wasserman Schultz, 46, was first elected to represent a southeast Florida congressional district in 2004.
