Bernie Sanders' Supporters Call On Him To Run For President Again

BROOKLYN, N.Y. ― Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) held over 400 house parties in all 50 states and Puerto Rico on Saturday afternoon calling on Sanders to run for president again in 2020.

Sanders maintains that he is still considering whether he is the best person to defeat President Donald Trump.

But Saturday’s show of force, arranged by Organizing for Bernie ― an upstart group founded by Sanders campaign alumni and grassroots activists ― demonstrated one of the senator’s biggest advantages if he decides to return to the ring: a network of supporters already familiar with his message and skilled in do-it-yourself internet organizing.

Speaking to the house parties by livestream, Kat Brezler, a Bronx public school teacher and co-founder of the group People for Bernie, called on the participants to use social media to show Sanders the scale of his support with the hashtag RunBernieRun.

3. As someone who voted for Sanders

 

in the NY primary in 16, I hope he doesn’t. He is too divisive to the party.

12. Some people are so fixated on going down with their ship

They'll blow it up if it seems as if it would otherwise safely reach its port of destination.

10. Bad idea. Although . . .

Although it may be the only way to break the spell he holds over an ever-shrinking number of Dems.

If he runs, his progressive platform will have plenty of competition from candidates who may be more appealing to groups of voters who Sanders alienated in the 2016 primaries. I think he will be sidelined - in spite of intense media attention - and straggle in third or fourth behind stronger candidates.

11. Trump would easily defeat Sanders. I think as DEMOCRATS, we can do better.

All I'm saying is that we need a stronger candidate and we have a large pool of very talented DEMOCRATS from which to choose.

13. I still believe that sanders will not run in 2020

I think that sanders is mainly focused on selling his latest poorly reviewed book. If sanders runs, he will have to comply with DNC rules and actually join the party and agree to run and govern as a member of the party.

In addition sanders would have to comply with Maryland and some other blue states ballot access laws and release full copies of his tax returns. To date, sanders has not released full copies of his tax returns. So far sanders has only released two pages of his 2014 return. I would love to see sanders full tax returns

15. Bernie and Jane will have to release their tax returns this time.

I predict that he will not run. He will snipe from the sidelines.

18. How perfectly timed!

After a slew of 'bad news' for Bernie, we get stories of a grassroots efforts: RunBernieRun.

A coinky-dink?

I think not. Bernie Sanders is yesterday's news.
