Their is an idea going around that Bernie is going to dominant this primary and be coronated, and our initial haul helped solidify that opinion. Beto fundraising proved that we aren't in that position, as nice as it would be.

Fight like we did in 2016 (against a much larger mountain to climb), and we will win.

IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR CA VOTERS: If you are registered as “Independent”, you are registered under the American Independent Party and can NOT vote for Bernie in the primaries. RE-REGISTER NOW. Our primary has moved up to Super Tuesday!

Our primary is moved up to Super Tuesday, so we have less time than usual to get people re-registered. Spread the word!

If you registered as an Independent in California, you're part of the American Independent Party (a far right third party in CA). Fun fact, they tout that they are the "fastest growing party in CA", but that's because people are confusing it with being independent from a political party, and you might be one of them!

If you made that mistake, re-register as a Democrat to vote for Bernie in the California primaries. You can also register as an No Party Preference (NPP) but you'll save yourself some time by registering as a Dem.

Re-register here: https://registertovote.ca.gov/

If you're not sure if you're registered, check here: https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov/

Spread the word to all your friends who are "Independent" today!

[WA] You have until April 4th to weigh in on whether we switch from caucus to primary.

The Democratic committee members to the state party in Washington state are voting on a measure to change the state's Democratic caucus to a primary. In 2016, Bernie won the Democratic caucus in Washington, but lost the mail-in primary, (which did not count towards the elector totals, for weird reasons). However, a primary means a lot of voters getting to actually vote in the nomination because Washington is a mail-in ballot state. I believe that Bernie and all of us should stand up for the right of all voters to participate in the nomination process.

If you live in Washington state, please weigh in on the issue and let the state party know where you stand.

Let’s say Bernie landslides the primary, who would be the best overall fit for a VP slot on the 2020 ticket?

I know a lot of people like Warren and Tulsi but my honest opinion is that Kamala Harris would be the best possible pick. She's experienced, young, a POC, from a major state, and the biggest factor for me is that she is the ONE major person in the democratic party that Trump has a difficult time getting under their skin.

What do you all think?

The DNC will split primary debates into two “randomly” selected groups

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

What's happening:

The DNC will hold 12 official debates in the upcoming primary, but the groups will be split into two. In their words, they intend to mitigate the "undercard effect" where less popular candidates get placed on a secondary debate schedule, which cuts their exposure. However, this still means one group during one round of debates will get the primetime spot, and the other will hardly be watched.

My speculation:

I think they will split the groups with the intent on giving better exposure to establishment front-runners. (i.e. Harris practically gets the stage to herself on a Wednesday @ 8pm slot, while Bernie only gets put up against her in the undercard on a Friday night).

What can be done:

  1. Biden, Harris and the establishment candidates will have all of their corporate double-speak broadcast to as many people as possible. Call them out on it, loudly and clearly. They only get a few minutes to talk to your friends and family. You have the rest of the night.
  2. The Sanders campaign is focusing less on TV this time around, with the understanding that it will be a very expensive way to not get the exposure you want. Invest your time in the ground game and volunteer whenever you can spare a few hours. We can get exposure without the MSM. We did it last time and almost beat a billionaire behemoth.

I live in Carter County Tennessee, one of the two counties in Tennessee that Bernie won in 2016. Let me explain why we were successful, in the hopes that it will be helpful to other Southern primary campaigns!

Let me be very blunt, the Democratic Party basically doesn't exist in any meaningful way in my county, they hold no real power so there isn't really an "establishment" to speak of. Obviously this played a big role in our win, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

We worked our butts off getting the word out about Bernie and what we found is that poor working class southern people are very receptive to his anti-wall street and anti-income inequality messaging. People here aren't dumb they can see that something is wrong with the way wealth is divided in this country when they live in mobile homes while their bosses live in luxury, the problem is no one has told them that it can change. This is what we need to be pushing first and foremost in the south, we don't need to confuse people with terms like democratic socialism or free healthcare. We need to tell them the truth, that they're getting screwed everyday and they know it. That is how we win
