Sanders headlining event aimed at boosting Democrats

Carly Hein of Omaha, Neb., talks on her cell phone as she waits for Sen.

"I really struggled with choosing between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton during the primary, now that, you know, things have happened as they have, I wanted to contribute towards making sure the tweeting, the childishness, it doesn't continue", Hall said.

Bringing together the once opposing political staffers follows Perez's decision to name Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., his rival for DNC chair, as the party's vice chair.

FILE - In this Friday, March 31, 2017 file photo, Sen. Bernie Sanders from swinging through the Bluegrass State Tuesday night, where a crowd welcomed him with deafening cheers and standing ovations.

But the rancor both onstage and in the crowds indicate the party can not simply paper over the internal divisions exposed during the Democratic primary battle previous year between Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

Perez didn't directly say whether his party supported that type of program, but stated, in an apparent effort to illustrate an area of unity, that the DNC believed health care was a "right" and that Democrats rallied behind an effort to defeat President Trump's American Health Care Act.

It may not seem the most likely role for the slightly stooped, white-haired, 75-year-old Vermont senator.

Sanders railed against inequality in the United States and called out the "ruling class of this country, the billionaire class, and Wall Street" for "destroying" the United States with their "greed". The avowed socialist's insurgent presidential campaign past year exposed a sclerotic Democratic Party leadership woefully out of touch with its progressive base-a base that was at times openly hostile to the party's designated heir apparent, Hillary Clinton, and completely uninterested in appeals to the white working class. "We need to make the Democratic Party not just a party of the east coat and the west coast but a party for all 50 states". "And we can start right here by electing Heath Mello as the next mayor". Most are in their 30s or 40s.

The hyperactive Perez was followed on stage by the smoother presence of Sanders, who delivered a hardcore socialist message to the largely millennial audience in a grandfatherly manner.

"That's the vision for the future?" she asked.

Some of the candidates Sanders has endorsed are direct products of the his campaign, such as Khalid Kamau, who was elected to the South Fulton, Georgia, City Council on Tuesday.

For the first time in history, ME split its Electoral College vote between two candidates a year ago.

Others reflect Sanders' challenge to the party establishment, such as Tom Pierrello of Virginia.

Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, called for a grass-roots resurgence in which progressives run for offices ranging from local school board to Congress.

Statewide, it's a different story: Democrats have lost all but six of the last 27 statewide elections. Sanders, as always, is the firebrand, though now he comes with a power base of passionate supporters the party is desperate to win over.

On Tuesday, Sanders brought numerous roughly 2,800 in Louisville to their feet by reprising key lines from his 2016 campaign, including: "Our job is to take on the moneyed interests". Sanders told CNN's Jake Tapper on 'State of the Union' Sunday morning.

Irving scores 37 to lead Cavs
At the end of the third quarter Monday, the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard victimized Stephenson with a killer crossover. Teague injured his right wrist in the second half and coach Nate McMillan said the starting guard will undergo X-rays.

"Just seeing him inspires people", said Shannon Jackson, executive director of Sanders' PAC.

Sanders drew thousands to a rally at the civic center in Portland in July 2015, showing he was more than a fringe candidate.

The chair of the Democratic National Committee said that Republican leaders are fighting against the interests of Kentuckians by trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Thompson raised a fraction of Ossoff's haul, and in smaller contributions, a hallmark of Sanders' own campaign.

"It's a lovely community which is under threat of incredible gentrification", Sanders said.

"You don't stand with the working people of this country by supporting health care legislation that throws 24 million people off of health insurance", former presidential candidate Sanders said of the languishing health care overhaul backed by Trump.

"We need newer faces across the board: veterans, police officers, teachers, coaches, firefighters that can improve our party's brand at least visually", said Ryan, who unsuccessfully challenged Nancy Pelosi for House minority leader late previous year.

Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in the U.S. earlier this month and spoke by phone with him last week to discuss North Korea's progress in missile development and another potential nuclear test.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk. The problem is, he's now the de facto leader of a party that has embraced his socialism but written off the white working class, which it needs to win national elections.
