Donald Trump finished first in the primary, carrying roughly one third of the vote.

“Trump’s win sends a powerful message: that the Republican Party has rejected the values of the American people, making it all the more clear that we must elect a Democrat as the 45th President of the United States to keep America moving forward,” she said in a statement.

The Washington Examiner went on to say that Wasserman Schultz is not one to save her criticism for one candidate, she also denounced Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who remains in a dead heat against Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for second place in the Palmetto State, and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

“Whether it’s Ben Carson’s daily confusion and reports that he is running out of cash or Marco Rubio’s growing desperation to spin his way out of three consecutive losses — even with the endorsement of South Carolina’s popular governor, the once Grand Old Party is now the Party of Trump,” she said.

Despite describing South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as “popular,” the top Democrat suggested that exit polls showing Haley’s endorsement had a minimal impact on voters in her home state “severely damage[s]” her position as a potential vice presidential candidate depending on who secures the Republican nomination.

However, Fox News’ exit polls found that 30 percent of undecided voters chose to support Rubio in the end, which suggests Haley’s endorsement in the final days before the primary may have pushed a significant portion of voters toward the Florida senator. Cruz, meanwhile, received the support of 20 percent of undecided voters while Trump managed to secure 16 percent support.

The remaining five GOP candidates will head next to Nevada where the Republican caucuses will take place on Feb. 23. South Carolina Democrats will hold their primary one week from Saturday on Feb. 27.
