Law professor Tim Canova made a big splash in 2016 with his primary challenge to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Weston), while she was the sitting Democratic National Committee chair. Mr. Canova attracted just under $4 million in financial support, and an endorsement from presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, but lost the party primary 43-57%. He announced that he would seek a re-match this year. With little in the way of 2018 support developing for him, and Sen. Sanders staying away from the re-match, Mr. Canova yesterday announced he is exiting the Democratic primary and will run as an Independent in the general election. It is now clearly evident that Rep. Wasserman Schultz is a cinch for re-election.
