Anti-Islam activist to face Wasserman Schultz for third time

Joe Kaufman, a writer and anti-Islam activist, has won the GOP nomination for the district represented by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whom he has run against twice before.

Kaufman appeared on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” and received national attention during the 2012 congressional elections, when he blocked a Muslim man from joining his GOP chapter on the erroneous grounds he was an extremist.

Seven-term congresswoman Wasserman Schultz will be welcoming his victory in Florida’s 23rd district: her worry was a moderate GOP opponent who could have reduced her vote and opened the door to Timothy Canova, a well-funded law professor who won Bernie Sanders’s endorsement in 2016 and is running as an independent this time.
