Major Progressive Group Backs Sanders (DFA Endorsement)

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/263572-major-progressive-group-backs-sanders

The progressive group Democracy for America will endorse Bernie Sanders, the first presidential primary endorsement in the history of the group that boasts more than 1 million members.

The Vermont senator won 88 percent of the group’s online vote, far beyond the two-thirds majority needed to trigger an endorsement. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton won just 10 percent of the vote, with former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley finishing with 1 percent.

“Bernie Sanders is an unyielding populist progressive who decisively won Democracy for America members’ first presidential primary endorsement because of his lifelong commitment to taking on income inequality and the wealthy and powerful interests who are responsible for it,” DFA executive director Charles Chamberlain said in a statement alongside the announcement.

“With today’s endorsement, DFA members are joining Bernie’s “political revolution” and working to take it both to the White House and up-and-down the ballot, in races coast to coast.”


Woooohoooo!!!

4. Howard dean started group

yet him sending out email for clinton did nothing.i got one of the emails from him,and couldn't believe he called her a progressive.

to be fair i believe his brother who runs the group is more progressive than him,and sent signals in past he likes bernie.
