Bernie Sanders backs Dwight Bullard for Miami-Dade Democratic party position

Bernie Sanders has endorsed former state Sen. Dwight Bullard for a position within the Miami-Dade Democratic Party and subtly bashed his opponent, Stephen Bittel, a wealthy Coconut Grove developer and major campaign donor, without naming him.

The winner of the state committeeman race Dec. 20th will run for Florida Democratic Party chair in January.

"An extremely wealthy donor wants to buy his way to lead Florida's Democratic Party, and the only thing between him and control of the party is our political revolution," Sanders wrote. "Here's where you come in: we need people like you in Miami Dade County to become precinct chairs and vote for Dwight Bullard on Tuesday, December 20."

Earlier this month, Bret Berlin was re-elected state committeeman but days later resigned to make way for Bittel to run for the position. Before Bittel can run for state chair, he must first hold a county position.

There is no fuckin' revolution, Bernie. Go back to the Senate and do your job.

3. If he's good enough for Bernie, he's good enough for me.

Can't be any worse than the fucking graft whore/land developer/pay to play donor that some people are apparently ok with because Sanders endorsed his opponent. Must be nice still living out your high school days.
