BREAKING: WFP endorses Bernie Sanders!
Last edited Tue Dec 8, 2015, 12:41 PM - Edit history (1)
We're proud to stand with Senator Sanders. Thousands of WFP members like you overwhelmingly see him as a progressive who understands the problems our country faces. Who understands that it will take a "political revolution" to challenge the power of the big money crowd that puts greed above all other values.
Working Families Party is for Bernie because Bernie is for working families. The rich may not worry much about the cost of college or their hourly wage, but nearly everyone else does. We need a President who knows what he believes, a President who is not afraid to tell the truth about our country.
Today, WFPers are celebrating. Tomorrow, we'll get to work mobilizing the energy of member like you and the talents of WFP staff to grow the #WFP4Bernie revolution!
It's a big challenge. The WFP has never endorsed on a national level before. But with your help, we can get the job done.

In the 17 years since the birth of the Working Families Party, we've never done anything like this. When our leadership decided to make a national endorsement in the Democratic Primary, we knew we had to hear what on-the-ground supporters and activists like you had to say.
Here are a few of the reasons why Working Families Party members in all 50 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands voted for Bernie:
Patricia in WV: I voted for Bernie because I don't want to see my mother working two jobs until she's 65 only to retire in poverty.
Tracey in WI: We need to move the Democrats back to being true progressives and not corporate Democrats. That is the basic of the Working Families Party- a party that works for the people... not Wall Street.
Dan in NY: In casting my vote for Bernie Sanders, I was expressing my deepest hopes for racial, social and economic justice and environmental stewardship, not exploitation.
Wayne in VA: The WFP is the only organization on the scene capable of advancing his agenda after the 2016 election.
Together with your support and citizens who we haven't even met yet, we'll work hard for Bernie Sanders and the political revolution that the whole country needs. The next few months may make history, not just for the Working Families Party, or the Democrats, but for you, and me, and all of us.
This is going to take time, effort and resources. So we're asking: are you with us? Click here to pitch in $3 to jumpstart organizing #WFP4Bernie.

And, the New York Times has an article about it as well
WFP Endorses Bernie Sanders
No fix was in, Hillary was leading in the polls and WFP endorsed Sanders anyway. Cool.
Thanks, marym625--and I'm dipping this one in chocolate, too!
Now, my meaning is clear to everyone. Thanks!
Though many of them didn't like her last time.
I just hate having to load pictures
Thanks for the link. After I posted this, I saw it in LBN. I hadn't seen the NYT article, just got the email because I'm a member
And their first Presidential endorsement, ever!
More and more are feeling the Bern. It is a most promising opportunity for Progressive values to reverberate throughout the country.
Yes, I gave and will give more.
This isn't the article though. This was an email sent to the members just before the article came out. I just hadn't checked my email before it was published.
Having the link is even better! I'll edit and add. Thank you!
The only person in the world who could quell this storm of hate is Bernie. I mean HRC is a very polarizing candidate, all the R s are crazy or total tools.
Is this an emerging new official name within the Democratic Party or a rising Third Party?
They have their Third Way Party loyalists and now here comes the party of the progressive wing
Will Hills join the progressive party wing as her evolving stances continue or will she shun them exposing the phoniness?
They've been around since 1988, started in NY but have grown a great deal
They seldom run their own cabdidates and focus more on legislation. This is the first time they've endorsed anyone for President
They're a progressive party. Personally, I hope that we can move to more than a two (cough) party system and the Working Family Party can be one of the stronger parties in a 5 or 6 party system. But, not going to hold my breath.
I bet if you scraped together all the "working families" in America, they'd have only a tiny fraction of the money - certainly not enough for them to matter. I bet they don't even have a SuperPAC, or a lobbying firm.
Let's keep our eyes on the ball, people!
( just to be safe)
Who the fuck do these people think they are? Well, they're poor enough we don't have to acknowledge them so don't you worry!
Hee hee. Good post. Yeah, better you use the thing. :Hi:
I think you'll find that EVERY ONE of Sander's has a MUCH HIGHER approval rating over Clinton's.
Not the 1%ers.
Thanks for posting this marym!
Loved posting this. Bernie deserves it!
Nope, not the 1%.
BERNIE! #Bernie2016 #FeelTheBern
..I sent a really big thank you to WF through their "contact us" link. And it did move me.
That's great. It is moving. And even more so because they actually listened to their members, unlike some other groups
I haven't seen you in a while! How are you?
I'm sure you've seen the most important endorsements
