Bernie Sanders' First 2016 Congressional Endorser Explains Why He's Backing Warren Now

Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), who became the first member of Congress to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) 2016 presidential campaign, announced this week that he will back Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) this time around.

“I think it's a very powerful combination that Elizabeth has,” Grijalva told The Daily Beast ahead of a Thursday event in Arizona where he will introduce the Massachusetts Democrat. “And that's that she's got the intellect and more importantly the heart for this job. And that I think she brings in a level of smarts and energy. I think that's what it's going to take to take Trump out. And philosophically, I agree with her.”

4. Many 2016 Sanders supporters were interested in Warren in 2016 too...

 

...but Warren didn't run. So if you wanted someone with Warren-like policies to the left of Hillary, Bernie was your only choice. We have more choices this time.
