Whether it’s Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, or even Hermain Cain, it doesn’t matter who wins the Republican presidential nomination, according to the Democratic National Committee chair.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared in a debate with RNC counterpart Reince Priebus on Face The Nation Sunday morning. And the Florida congressman expressed her thoughts of there being no stark difference in any of the GOP candidates from one another.

“It doesn’t much matter which one of the Republicans gets nominated because they’re all the same,” Schultz said. “They are all embracing and bear-hugging the Tea Party. Moving to the right, they can’t move to the right far enough.”

She added: “They all favor privatizing Social Security, which would pull the safety net out from under our seniors, and favor ending Medicare as we know it. They all are wrong on immigration reform when it comes to Hispanics in the states.”

As expected, Priebus tried to put a different spin on it, even with rumors of New Jersey governor Chris Christie possibly joining the race thanks to many in the party not impressed with their current crop of candidates.

“Look, I’m happy with the field. I think it’s a great field,” he said. “Is there a time through a nomination process technically to still get in? Sure there is.”
