There are so many issues that affect the working class that it is very hard to find a candidate that is focused on addressing the majority of them, let alone even half of them.
The Clinton campaign’s next event in Greenville was scheduled for Thursday at Furman University.
“When we stand together there is nothing, nothing, nothing we can not accomplish”, he said.
While Clinton remains the front-runner in the primary race, the Wednesday night event was intended as a show of strength for Sanders candidacy.
Bernie Sanders called on supporters to spark a political revolution for his candidacy Wednesday night, offering a rallying cry of enough is enough on a video simulcast to events across the country.
“He speaks what’s on his mind which is really important, but he is also a breath of fresh air”, said Henry.
“I am 100 percent for Bernie”.
Voters are “tired of the same old thing”, he said.
At the Capitol Hill rally, Sanders was introduced by RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of the 185,000-member National Nurses United and a national vice president of the AFL-CIO.
Although Engelman admitted that Clinton will most likely gain the nomination, she believes Sanders can positively impact the election.
Shunning negative advertisements and big money donors, Sanders is breaking the model of modern campaigns and rapidly gaining popular support on an agenda that he has advocated for over 30 years. But many of his donations have come in the form of small, individual contributions below $250, mimicking the Independent senator’s grassroots fundraising efforts nationwide. The comparison to this movement in literature is apt as Sanders’ support is nearly entirely grassroots, driven by normal people rather than corporate interest.
“College students are always some of the people who are attracted to the revolutionary, the new ideas”, Lott said. Despite being more aligned on issues, some union leaders fear Sanders may not be electable. Sanders (I-Vt.) said was aimed at building a political movement from the ground up, saw the democratic socialist beamed into bars, libraries, and living rooms from Alaska to Florida. McDowell said he would be registering as a Democrat to vote for Sanders in the primary.
When asked by a reporter about the statement, Sanders said the question at issue was whether to completely open the border so that anyone could enter the United States.
The things he spoke about, McDowell said, can happen in Delaware. But just weeks after the senator’s speech at a progressive event was interrupted by “Black Lives Matter” protestors, he stressed the need to “combat institutional racism in America” and criminal justice reform.
