President Barack Obama today announced via Twitter he indeed has asked Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to continue her leadership as the Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
I’ve asked Debbie Wasserman Schultz to continue her excellent work as chair of the DNC. Thanks for all you do, Debbie. -bo

That “-bo” indicates President Obama sent the tweet himself.
“Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz has served as chair since shortly after Tim Kaine stepped down to run for the U.S. Senate in Virginia in the spring of 2011,” a senior Democratic official told Politico’s Mike Allen. “With President Obama at the top of the ticket and Wasserman Schultz leading the party, Democrats won the presidency, expanded its majority in the Senate and picked up seats in the House.”
