DNC chair: Republicans are scarier than ISIS or Ebola

In an interview with CNN anchor Candy Crowley on Sunday, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz agreed with the suggestion that Democrats believe Republicans are scarier than ISIS or Ebola. After Crowley played a campaign ad that labeled GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner "way too extreme for Colorado," she asked Wasserman-Schultz about the extremism message:

Crowley: So we've heard this in previous elections, too extreme, too extreme their Tea Party, we can't work with them. So, it seems that the Democrats' overall message is yes, ISIS is scary. Yes, Ebola is scary but Republicans are a lot scarier.

Wasserman-Schultz: Well, that's right. Cory Gardner is a sponsor of a bill that would prevent women from being able to get access to make their own reproductive choices even in the case of rape or incest. [Real Clear Politics]

Wasserman-Schultz made headlines last week for her refusal or inability to name competitive Senate campaigns in which the president has been active.
