Today, John Lewis and Sherrod Brown...

endorsed Biden.

However, if you go onto Twitter the Rose Brigade is only attacking one of them. Why is that?

Bonus points: Wanna guess which one they are going after?

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

cautiously suspicious of Sanders' character and goals. That was last election. This time apparently the organization's socialist old guard has fallen to Sanders' populists. They used to be more careful about accepting people who applied for membership (wouldn't accept me when I applied), but they won't be the first organization to be destroyed by an influx of people with different ideas.

In fact, that happened to our Democratic Republican Party approximately 200 years ago now.
