Bernie Sanders' Iowa Army Is 'Effing Pumped' 'WE DESERVE BETTER' Some of Elizabeth Warren's Iowa sup

Daily Beast

Some of Elizabeth Warren’s Iowa supporters are worried about Sanders’ high-energy fan base.

DES MOINES, Iowa—On Friday morning, Cyndi Conard’s home at the end of a snowy road was alive with pre-caucus energy. As Conard, a precinct captain in Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign, removed quiche from her oven, Warren staff instructed volunteers how to persuade undecided voters to join their team, handing out door hangers, clipboards and hand warmers, the hum of human activity interrupted only by the squawk of Conard’s cockatoo Derby Doo.

They were preparing for the arrival of Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), one of Warren’s several designated torchbearers there to help the campaign as the impeachment trial continued to keep the candidate in D.C.

But Conard was nervous.

“They’ve done a good job, I will have to say, getting out there,” she said of Warren’s team. “I think his group has too. So it’s kind of hard to know what’s gonna happen.”

The “his” she was referring to is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and in the dwindling days before the Iowa caucuses, the energy among his supporters has propelled him to frontrunner status.

3. since you asked....

 

they got to the caucus location late and went around and tore off the walls all the organizer materials and hillary materials then put their own up despite being asked not to. had they been on time they would have gotten the chance to set up their own stuff along with the others. then they set up their tables where the were asked not to and sold bernie merchandise which is not allowed but they didnt care about that of course. the rest of the morning they were disruptive of the running of the meeting. hawaii has a semi caucus set up instead of a primary which is easily hindered by disruptive people

5. Some just refuse to accept the "enthusiasm gap" that Bernie creates in his favor.

 

We The People know that Bernie would "walk over hot coals" to promote his aggressive progressive agenda and fight for equality and justice on our behalf, cuz HE'S WITH US... so, we sure as hell are going to walk back over those same hot coals to turn out for HIM!! Go Bernie!!


Bernie/Elizabeth or Elizabeth/Bernie 2020!!
Either way, they're stronger together & can't be bought!!
Jump on the Bernie Bandwagon & join The Revolution!!

7. If he were ever to win, I would vote for him but it would be with a breaking heart. So feel free

 

to give my seat to a manbun.

Our Revolution won ZERO seats in 2018. Bernie, if nominated, will lose in a landslide.

No matter how many emojis you jam into your posts.
