The Sunlight Foundation, which reported on Mrs. Wasserman Schultz’s refusal to take PAC money this week, also noted that during the first quarter of this year, only about one-fourth of the money Mrs. Wasserman Schultz raised came from PACs.

She took over the DNC when former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine stepped down to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Jim Webb, a fellow Democrat. Mrs. Wasserman Schultz has said she plans to lead the DNC while retaining her seat in Congress.

In remarks after assuming the DNC job, she urged members of her party to “trumpet President Obama’s agenda from the rooftops.” She said the DNC would “invest in the strongest campaign and the best organizing ever to give President Obama a second term.”

She also predicted that the 2012 campaign would be “the toughest campaign in the history of America” and that “Republicans are going to throw everything they have at us.”
