Bernie Sanders Wins Landslides in Washington, Alaska and Hawaii; Corporate Media Downplays Them

28 March 2016

On Saturday, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won landslide victories in Washington, Alaska and Hawaii, chipping away at front-runner Hillary Clinton’s lead in the race to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for the White House. Sanders won at least 71 percent of the vote in each state, including 82 percent in Alaska.

“The reason we are doing well is because we are talking about the real issues facing America and we’re telling the truth,” said Sanders in a victory speech in Wisconsin. While Saturday may have been the biggest day of the Sanders campaign, the corporate media largely downplayed his victories. We air part of his victory speech.

As Sanders Sweeps 3 States, Meet the Young Immigrant Activist Helping Him Mobilize Latinos

28 March 2016

On Saturday, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won landslide victories in Washington, Alaska and Hawaii, chipping away at front-runner Hillary Clinton’s lead in the race to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for the White House. … Sanders will still need to pull off big upsets in Wisconsin, New York and California to catch up with Clinton in terms of pledged delegates. Clinton also maintains a huge lead among superdelegates, members of the Democratic Party establishment who could change their vote at any point.

… We speak with Erika Andiola, press secretary for Latino outreach for the Bernie Sanders campaign and a prominent immigrant rights activist.

After A String of Victories, Sanders Opens Maryland Campaign HQ

Former NAACP head Ben Jealous, national press secretary Symone Sanders, local activists and elected officials discuss the Sanders campaign at the Freddie Gray Youth Empowerment Center.

From the Huffington Post in the USA today:

WASHINGTON — Rep. Collin Peterson (Minn.), one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, says he’ll cast his vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president if he attends the Democratic National Convention in July.

Peterson told Forum News Service on Saturday that his vote at the convention would reflect the will of his constituents, who overwhelmingly supported Sanders in the state’s March 1 Democratic caucuses. Sanders won Peterson’s district with 63 percent of the vote, compared to Hillary Clinton’s 37 percent.

“I’m voting my district,” he said. “I’m going to vote for Bernie.”

  1. You have to see this Wall Street Journal headline from late last week:

    “Hillary Clinton Begins Shift to the General Election”

    Unfortunately for the Clinton campaign’s plans, voters got in the way. We’ve won six of the last seven contests, and took 82% of the vote in Alaska, 73% in Washington, and 70% in Hawaii.

    Here’s the truth: the Clinton campaign and their allies in the financial and political establishment are desperately trying to write us off. Their goal is to get you to stop fighting — to stop volunteering, to stop donating — because they know that if we continue to stand together, we can win.

    Now we have to focus on next Tuesday’s primary in Wisconsin, another large state where we can do very well.

    Make a $3 contribution to Bernie’s campaign ahead of our critical FEC fundraising deadline, and we are going to win Wisconsin and move one step close to the Democratic nomination.

    For the past several years, Wisconsin has been ground zero for worker’s rights, women’s rights, and voting rights. Those people cannot afford to wait for incremental change — they need a president who will think big about the transformational change required of this moment. And that is what Bernie will deliver.

    In solidarity,

  3. We sent a letter to Hillary Clinton’s campaign over the weekend asking for a debate in New York before its battleground primary on April 19.

    Add your name to our letter to say you want to see Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders debate in New York.

    Add your name.

    You can read the full letter to Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook here:

    Dear Robby,

    I am writing to you about the remaining, agreed-upon Democratic primary season debates in April and May of this year. As you know, Secretary Clinton agreed to three additional debates – one in March, one in April, one in May – in return for our campaign agreeing to the late-scheduled debate in New Hampshire prior to that state’s primary.

    At Senator Sanders’ request, the March debate was held in Michigan. As I understand it, there was previously agreement reached by our representatives for the May debate to be held in California. I trust that commitment remains on your part.

    However, there has not been agreement on the April debate in terms of date or location. Our campaign continues to believe that the people of New York deserve to have the debate held in their state, and that it should be held prior to the New York primary.

    Given the outcome of electoral contests since March 15th it is clearer than ever that New York will play a critical role in determining the Democratic nominee. However, your campaign has consistently chosen to deny the people of New York the opportunity to see Senator Sanders and Secretary Clinton debate in the Empire State.

    It is difficult to understand your motivation. I have received calls from numerous news companies seeking to sponsor a New York debate so I know the media interest would be high. Can you please explain why New York should not host the April debate? Is the Secretary concerned about debating before the people who twice elected her to the U.S. Senate?

    Perhaps there is some tactical advantage you are seeking by avoiding a debate in New York but I would remind you that Senator Sanders agreed to debate the Secretary in New Hampshire when he was well ahead in the polls.

    I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience so we can schedule the New York debate in April.

    Regards,

    Jeff Weaver
