Bernie Sanders for President

Dears Compatriots,

     In just three days, we will be competing in the Washington, D.C. primary. 

This is the last primary of the Democratic nominating process and we are fighting hard for every last vote until the polls close on Tuesday night.

From there, we will take our issues to the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia next month.

But no matter what happens, the truth is that no president, not Bernie Sanders, not Hillary Clinton, not the greatest president you can possibly imagine can address the enormous problems facing the working families of our country by him or herself.

 That is the truth, and that is why we need a grassroots political movement in this country: 

A Political Revolution.

And that political revolution must work to elect candidates up and down the ballot, including members of Congress who are willing to stand up to corporate America and Wall Street. 

That’s why I am endorsing two progressives who have done that work throughout their careers: Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur and Congressman Rick Nolan.

Congressman Rick Nolan (Minnesota) represents one of the most competitive congressional districts in the country. Normally when that happens, the elected official moves to the “right” to protect their seat. Not Rick. His election is a great opportunity to prove one can serve as a progressive and still win a difficult race.

Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (Ohio) is a leading voice to adopt fair trade policies which not only raise wages in this country, but lift living standards throughout the world. She has been fighting for a fair trade policy from the day she came to Congress.

I know that if you stand with them, as we have stood together throughout this campaign, we are almost certainly going to transform the Democratic Party, and we are going to transform this country.

From the very beginning, our campaign has been about building a movement which brings working people and young people together to create a government that represents all of us, and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors.

Supporting Rick Nolan and Marcy Kaptur is an important extension of that work.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders
