Rand Paul is the two-word answer to the question “Why should the Democrats hope Bernie Sanders runs in the Democratic primaries?”
A small group of progressive activists will meet Tuesday to form a "Draft Bernie Sanders for President" steering committee in Johnson County, Iowa, to persuade the Vermont senator to run as a Democrat in the 2016 Iowa caucuses.
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont politician who is a self-described democratic socialist, is the focus of a draft for president committee in Johnson County. A press release from the group says it wants him to run for president as a Democrat in the 2016 Iowa caucuses.
Northampton, Massachusetts—Senator Bernie Sanders is inching closer to deciding to run for president as a Democrat in 2016.
When Sanders appeared in Northampton to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Progressive Democrats of America, and to honor the legacy of the group’s late co-founder and national director, Tim Carpenter, “Run, Bernie, Run” sentiment ran high. Carpenter’s last act was to collect 11,000 petitions urging Sanders to run as a Democrat. And nothing Sanders said discouraged the consensus.
It’s debt ceiling time, and the United States economy is once again on the brink, held hostage by extremists hell-bent on forcing cuts to Medicare and Social Security. Oh, wait. That was last year. In 2014, for the first time in three years, the vote to extend the nation’s debt ceiling did not bring the United States to the brink of default in a high-stakes game of slash and burn.

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently a supporter, they may not be aware that the legislation exists. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request for support. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
