68. It is a SENATE leadership position, Schumer broke the position Senator Klobuchar had in half

Sanders position is a new one, representing half of the "Steering and Outreach Committee" now chaired by Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. Klobuchar will chair the steering committee next Congress https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/11/16/senate-democrats-tap-bernie-sanders-lead-outreach/93960822/

Th article says it is a Senate leadership position. In speaking of it, Sanders speaks of issues that he would support on the grassroots level.

I was named today part of the leadership, I think my title is to head of outreach efforts and that is something that I take very seriously," he said, "so I think again whether it’s the Supreme Court, the fight against bigotry, the fight for climate change our job is to bring millions of people together.”

During a Nov. 10 interview with USA TODAY, Sanders called for Democrats to get out of D.C. and engage working people following Democrat Hillary Clinton’s loss of the presidential race to Republican Donald Trump. Sanders said the party must put equal energy into mobilizing grassroots support outside the Washington beltway as it puts into work inside the beltway.



No one argued that Amy Klobuchar should personally get involved in races across the country, it is telling that many people - who all coincidentally were strong HRC supporters are blasting Sanders over his not going to Georgia -- when it is entirely possible that Ossoff asked both Sanders and Perez to not come and to not publicly support him.
