Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
NBC News has confirmed Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been tapped to lead the Democratic National Committee.
Wasserman Schultz replaces outgoing DNC Chair Tim Kaine. He announced today he plans to run for the open Senate seat in Virginia.
Wasserman Schultz will be doubling up on duties, as she does not plan to give up her House Seat.
It's not totally unheard of though. Former Sen. Chris Dodd also served as both DNC chair and as a U.S. Senator.
