Bernie Sanders campaign reacts to close vote in Nevada, USA

This video from the United States House of Representatives says about itself:

Flashback: Rep. Bernie Sanders Opposes Iraq War (now with sound!)

4 August 2015

Rep. Bernie Sanders speaks out in opposition to the war in Iraq on October 9, 2002 before a key vote.

From the Bernie Sanders presidential election campaign in the USA:

We should be very proud of what we accomplished today in Nevada. Just last month, the Clinton campaign said they were leading by 25 points in their internal polls. And the entrance polls show we won the Latino vote in Nevada by 8 points. We’ll leave Nevada just a few delegates behind. That’s huge momentum.

The wind is at our backs. And in the next month, there are 26 primaries and caucuses.

Our campaign is funded by more than 4 million individual contributions — a tremendous number of working people giving small amounts of money to take on a campaign and super PACs funded by millionaires, billionaires, hedge funds, and Wall Street.

Your $3 contribution right now will help send a message that you’re standing with Bernie, and that you can help him win.


Bernie said from the beginning that people should not underestimate us. That is true now more than ever.

Thank you for standing with Bernie.

In solidarity,

Jeff Weaver
Campaign Manager

Wall Street CEOs are very upset with young adults. They believe you are “clueless” and “voting against [your] own interests” when you support Bernie Sanders. A Wall Street CEO took to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to decry the fact that, “Millennials are flocking to Sanders.” It would be cruel to note that one has to be clueless to believe that writing an op-ed in the WSJ was a good way to reach millennials supporting Bernie. But at least we can gain an insight into Wall Street’s theory of why Bernie is bad for young adults. It turns out that Wall Street is worried that Bernie is pushing Hillary Clinton to take inequality seriously because younger Americans take inequality seriously. Wall Street, of course, loves and exists to produce staggering inequality: here.

  1. The final results are in from Nevada and it looks like we’re going to leave another state with roughly the same number of delegates as Hillary Clinton, maybe down just a few.

    I want to be completely clear with you about what this result means: Nevada was supposed to be a state “tailor made” for the Clinton campaign, and a place she once led by almost 40 points. But today, we sent a message that will stun the political and financial establishment of this country: our campaign can win anywhere.

    There are 26 primaries and caucuses in the next month, and three straight positive results for our campaign are sure to prompt an over-the-top response from the millionaires and billionaires who are funding our opponent and her many super PACs.

    We have to be prepared for their best shot, because it’s coming:

    Make a $3 contribution to our campaign tonight and we are going to win this Democratic primary, the White House, and take our country back from the billionaire class.

    We’re closing the gap dramatically in states that have yet to vote, and there’s a path to victory for our political revolution. If we continue to stand together, we’ll continue to win.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders

    DEMOCRATIC socialist presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is in no mood to concede the field to establishment favourite Hillary Clinton after her victory in the Democratic Party’s Nevada caucuses at the weekend.

    Her six-point lead in Nevada is likely to give her 20 of the state’s 35 delegates, which leaves both candidates with about 50 pledged candidates so far.

    Ms Clinton has the edge with so-called superdelegates — party officials able to support any candidate regardless of primary or caucus outcomes. She has captured the support of 451 superdelegates compared with Mr Sanders’s 19.

    However, superdelegates can switch their votes dependent on changed situations.

    This illustrates the importance of this weekend’s South Carolina primary and, more especially, the March 1 Super Tuesday contests where Mr Sanders believes he has a “good shot” of doing well in Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Oklahoma.

    The Vermont senator acknowledged that his insurgent campaign has made strides, but, “at the end of the day … you need delegates.”

    Ms Clinton gave evidence of some self-doubt on Sunday, telling CNN: “I think there’s an underlying question that maybe is really in the back of people’s minds and that is, you know, is she in it for us or is she in it for herself?

    “I think that is a question that people are trying to sort through.”

    More than half the 2,383 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination will be determined in the 28 states that hold primaries and caucuses in March.

    Big contests in Florida, Illinois, Missouri and Ohio take place on March 15.
