Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Tuesday that Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is the “GOP’s presumptive nominee” after the billionaire businessman’s sweeping wins in multiple states, including the all-important “winner take all” state: Florida.

Wasserman Schultz used Trump’s victories in Florida, North Carolina and Illinois to link him to various other Republicans’ misspeaks, including Todd Akin’s now infamous “legitimate rape” gaffe and Mitt Romney’s “self-deportation” remark from 2012.
The DNC chair also took aim at Senate Republicans, who she said “cling to obstruction, which comes with the dangerous risk of handing Donald Trump the next Supreme Court pick.”
Then, harkening back to Romney’s crushing defeat to President Barack Obama in 2012, Wasserman Schultz concluded the GOP’s so-called autopsy report “is dead.”
