Economist, Professor, activist Timothy Canova is running for Congress in Florida's 23 District, looking to unseat controversial career-politician Debbie Wasserman Shultz. Shultz, a long-time Hilary Clinton supporter, who has come under fire recently for scheduling few debates as chair of the Democratic National Committee (since 2011), and even those during off-peak viewing times, including opposite the male-favored Superbowl, has been the subject of recall petitions looking to oust her from the head of the DNC as well.

Furthermore, though a loyal Democrat to the wishes of her party's head, President Obama, in supporting the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, in practice this effectively means she is siding with the Republican side of the aisle, not the Democratic side, and certainly not with progressives or even many Tea Party types who are tired of seeing so-called Free Trade agreements that really mean more corporate power, fewer worker rights and protections for the environment, and fewer main street American jobs.

Into this bleak political picture comes a progressive breath of fresh air. From Canova's new website's About Me page:

Tim Canova has been challenging Wall Street banks and political corruption for most of his adult life.

As an activist, attorney, educator, and frequent commentator on the rigged economic and political systems that put Wall Street and multinational corporations first while leaving ordinary Americans behind, Tim is uniquely positioned to shake up Congress.

Canova has a long history of progressive activism backed with solid academic scholarship.
