Thankful for Bernie

Though he didn’t win the nomination this year, Bernie Sanders was a true champion of causes that sorely needed a voice.

We are better off for having his campaign get a strong showing in this primary season — all the way up through the democratic national convention.

It took a person of principles, courage, and resolve to have led a campaign like the one he has led. And I am looking forward to us continuing to work on the issues that he brought into the open during his campaign. Thank you, Bernie, for an incredible start in changing the direction of the conversation within the Democratic Party, and for daring to speak out loud the things that many, many of us have wanted for our country, whether we voted for you or not. Your work is not over yet!
