BERNIE’S PLAN B: Once His Undoing, Sanders Now Courting DNC Superdelegates

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.08.19

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is reportedly reaching out to Democratic superdelegates heading into a brutal primary battle against former Vice President Joe Biden; “shoring up” support from DNC insiders months before voters head to the polls.

“Now, as Sanders mounts a second bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, his campaign has something it did not have a few years ago, when his insurgent campaign unexpectedly caught fire: Allies in the very heart of the Democratic Party who could make a difference should the nomination go to a second ballot,” reports The Hill.

“In 2016, Sanders and his supporters railed against the influence of superdelegates within the DNC, those who had a vote at the national convention by virtue of their positions within the party, rather than because of the will of any voter,” adds the author.

Hillary Clinton won approximately 90% of the DNC superdelegates during her 2016 primary battle against Sanders.

South Bend, Indiana Mayor and rising Democratic star Pete Buttigieg slammed American-style capitalism Tuesday; saying he believes the current system “has let a lot of people down” across the country.

“I think the reason we’re having this argument over socialism and capitalism is that capitalism has let a lot of people down,” the mayor told CNN.

“I would say the reverse ought to be true — that at the end of the day, we prioritize democracy,” he added. “And having that framework of a rule of law, of fairness, is actually what it takes for markets to work.”

Buttigieg stunned political insiders in recent days when new polling data showed he had risen to third place among national Democratic candidates; trailing former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
