How Many Elected Democrats

will be in for very real primary challenges in the coming election cycles, whether or not Bernie becomes President (which he will).

I feel like a lot of them are living in a slow motion reality where they are not realizing the facts on the ground.

Things shifted so fast, and most of them probably felt like they could play it safe and support the status quo, and skate right on by while continuing to dine at the good old gravy train.

The secret is out on full display and now it is not possible to put it back in to the bottle, nor will it ever be.

Corporatists are on notice, the people of this great country are watching and paying attention, and this is going to be VERY interesting.

President Sanders 2016!

There were about 8 or 9 volunteers, one of whom is running for the Democratic nomination in NJ's 8th Congressional district. Albio Sires is the incumbent. His name is Eloy Delgado and he's a Bernie-crat to the core. Sires used to be my rep before redistricting.
