Sanders 2016

Sanders 2016 (427)

Despite Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s best efforts, four more Democratic presidential primary debates will be taking place this spring.
Bernie Sanders will win the first four contests of the 2016 Democratic Primary for the same reasons he won the endorsements 170 economists, MoveOn.org and The Nation. Furthermore, Sanders dominated the latest Democratic debate because he's never had to evolve from a conservative vantage point, towards a progressive stance.
Another wonderful day of Bernie effort here in Iowa.  Today the National Nurses United (NNU) "Bernie Bus" attracted plenty of attention -- so much so that the nurses were able to do pro-Bernie interviews with national and local media.  
I want a leader who truly cares about justice for my family, for black people and for all Americans.
The media is telling us that Bernie Sanders’ plan for a single payer healthcare option is unattainable, but the facts of the case say otherwise.  These naysayers clearly have something to gain by downplaying a plan that most Americans support.  
The road to my caucus location in Iowa on Monday will wind along an Iowa River valley littered with the reminders of record flooding and drought since the last election--and a sea change on voters' priorities on climate action since 2008.
People for Bernie is organizing volunteers through social media. National Nurses United is crisscrossing Iowa in its big red bus, working to turn out supporters at Monday’s caucuses. Progressive Democrats of America is already focused on states later in the primary calendar, holding house parties in Alabama, Florida and Virginia.
South Carolina state Rep. Justin T. Bamberg — the lawyer for the family of Walter Scott, who was killed by a police officer last April — endorsed Bernie Sanders Monday, after initially throwing his support behind Hillary Clinton in December.   in a press conference Bamberg said until now he had not given Sanders "his fair shake” but he now fully supports the Vermont senator.
