What does Styer's $ mean for down-ticket Bernie friendly congress?

This is pretty big news! The largest bunch of money to date going to candidates the most enviro-friendly in 7 states?

Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer's super PAC launched a $25 million youth voter drive on Monday in seven political battleground states to help elect candidates that champion climate change policies in November's general election.

Steyer's NextGen Climate super PAC, a political group that raises funds to boost candidates with strong environmental platforms, said the campaign aims to boost turnout of millennials, who have become one of the largest potential voter groups.

In the lead-up to the November general election, NextGen will deploy hundreds of organizers across over 200 colleges to register young voters and facilitate on-campus voting.

"We are determined that they will be a difference maker," Steyer told reporters on a conference call.

1. Looks like an opportunistic play for Bernie supporters

if he does not get the nomination.

5. Yes indeed. It would be a moral dilemma if it was an endorsment - but it's not and would not be

accepted by Sanders. I was talking about congressional candidates that might be more sympathetic to the revolution. In any case, this is a donation to an issue, not a party, and so would impact Hillary down-ticket candidates too.

So please, just cut it out with the drooling snarly dog responses.
