Democratic national chairwoman to appear for Higgins


   By Robert J. McCarthy

   Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, will highlight a fund raising event for Rep. Brian Higgins of Buffalo on Tuesday.
   Schultz will appear at the Buffalo Yacht Club for a fund raiser -- with tickets priced between $50 and $2,600 -- for the New Economy political action committee, a new leadership PAC sponsored by Higgins.
   The chairwoman is also expected to appear in Syracuse for Rep. Dan Maffei and in Ithaca for Martha Robertson, the Tompkins County legislator challenging Republican incumbent Rep. Tom Reed of Corning.
   A source familiar with the event said she is also slated to meet with area labor leaders, appear at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (she is a cancer survivor), and speak at Daemen College.
