Sanders, Perez kick off tour in Portland

22 April 2017

"I can not believe with all of the solar exposure that this state has, how little your utility has done to move this state in sustainable energy", Sanders said. Mitch McConnell in 2014 when she released a TV ad showing her holding a shotgun at a shooting range in an attempt to combat McConnell's image of her as an out-of-touch liberal politician.

It takes more than being a younger Democrat for a candidate to gain Sanders' support.

Their visit comes as Democrats are trying to rebound from a series of election losses in Kentucky. "They are Republican lite". Bernie Sanders stopped in Louisville Tuesday as part of their national tour called "Come Together and Fight Back".

We can't bring out about the changes - health care for all, making public colleges and universities tuition-free, transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel - unless we have the guts to point the finger at the ruling class of this country, the billionaire class and Wall Street, and say, "Your greed is destroying this country". What we have to do as Democrats is articulate very clearly that Donald Trump's vision for America is a vision for the top 1 percent of 1 percent. Democratic leaders have said it could be one of several examples of Democrats' re-engaging at the local level in the wake of Republican Donald Trump's victory in November. Bernie Sanders, who overwhelmingly won the state's caucus past year.

Sanders has every right to take what is essentially a semi-hostile stance toward the Democratic Party, one that says that those Democrats who meet his test of economic ideology are worthy and those who don't should be dismissed with a wave of the hand. The 43-year-old former U.S. House member and adviser to former President Barack Obama is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam. The exception has been former Gov. Steve Beshear, who embraced the law and delivered the Democratic response to Trump's speech to a joint session of Congress earlier this year.

And even some conservative columnists have suggested Trump's inability to win approval of legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act will lead inevitably to a single payer plan similar to Sanders' proposal to expand Medicare for all Americans, regardless of age.

"Well, you've come to the right place".

Some are direct products of the Sanders campaign, such as Khalid Kamau, who was elected to the South Fulton, Georgia, City Council on Tuesday.

The eight-state Sanders-Perez "Come Together and Fight Back" tour began Monday in ME and ends Saturday in Nevada, two states Clinton won in November.

"I really struggled with choosing between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton during the primary". Sanders will headline a Louisville event aimed at helping re-energize Kentucky's downtrodden Democratic Party.

Sanders was on MSNBC with DNC chair Tom Perez.

Senator Bernie Sanders and Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez held a rally Thursday in Salt Lake City, as they seek to reunify the party. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. speaks in Boston.

As unclear as it is what Sanders is actually trying to accomplish or why he's going about it the way he is, it is obvious that the Democratic Party is being led to a very unsafe place by someone who's not even a member: a platform that prioritizes the economic insecurity of rural, white men over all others.
