AFL-CIO Vice President: "The Remarkable Bernie Sanders Will Overcome the Crowning of Clinton"



The Remarkable Bernie Sanders Journey That Will Overcome the Crowning of Clinton
by RoseAnn DeMoro
March 25, 2016

RoseAnn DeMoro is executive director of the 185,000-member National Nurses United, the nationís largest union and professional association of nurses, and a national vice president of the AFL-CIO. Follow Rose Ann DeMoro on Twitter: www.twitter.com/NationalNurses


Itís not over. Far from it. The economic and political establishment, which includes the Democratic National Committee (DNC), its Wall Street and corporate backers, and the major media, most of it now owned by a half dozen big corporations, have worked feverishly to turn the Democratic primary process into a coronation for Hillary Clinton.

Forward to victory

Sanders himself says the path to his nomination is challenging, but still within range. States that were the biggest hurdle, in the South where the Clintonís have a long history and Sanders was a complete unknown, are all past.

The remaining states, including the two largest, California and New York, which have a base more favorable to Sanders, can be won with lots of delegates to be awarded. National polls have already shown substantial movement toward Sanders the past two months, and his edge over Clinton in head to head matchups with the remaining Republicans continues to grow.

The challenge, of course, is not just to Clinton, but to the movement, including nurses and the activist army that has shattered all records in campaign contributions to Sanders and creates the overflow crowds at his rallies.

Enthusiasm for the Sanders campaign, the transformative program that he presents, which is really the program NNU (National Nurses United) and grassroots activists have long championed, is off the charts, and continuing to grow.

Itís on to California, and what promises to be an explosive convention in Philadelphia.

3. Where is all the guff about the union members not having to follow their leaders?

 

That is what is said every time Hillary gets a union endorsement.
