Endorsement: Bernie Sanders for President

BREAKING: The Working Families Party just announced our endorsement of Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States!

Over the next few weeks, WFP supporters nationwide will be doing all we can to help Bernie win the nomination so we can defeat Donald Trump in November and build an America that works for the many, not the few.

Elizabeth Warren is a progressive lion, and we were so proud to stand alongside her in the fight for big, structural change every day. She ran a groundbreaking campaign, and this contest is poorer for her leaving it. We were lucky to have two progressive giants in this race.

But with the field narrowing and critical contests coming up in the next few weeks, we believe the choice for working families is clear.

Bernie Sanders has been a lifelong champion for working people. He wants to make healthcare, housing, childcare, and education basic rights, reform our criminal justice system, protect and expand Social Security, and take bold action on climate.

During his Live Q&A with WFP supporters in South Carolina last year, Senator Sanders vowed to break up big banks that contributed to the housing crash that saw working families lose their homes. He also pledged to invest heavily in affordable housing, strengthen the power of unions and fight for a Green New Deal in his first term.

Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were far and away the two highest vote-getters when the Working Families Party conducted our ranked choice voting process for its endorsement last September. With so much on the line in November, we can’t afford to sit on the sidelines now.

Working families can’t wait until next time. We can’t wait because climate change won’t wait, spiraling inequality won’t wait, our healthcare crisis won’t wait, and white supremacy won’t wait.

We are proud to endorse Bernie Sanders today because we believe he is our best chance of making this a country that works for the many, not the few — and our best chance of defeating Donald Trump in November.

Electing Bernie Sanders and progressives all the way down the ballot is how we will turn the big bold ideas that both he and Elizabeth Warren have championed for decades into a reality.

WFP supporters nationwide are mobilizing right now to do just that — and we want you to be a part of it.
