In Kentucky, Sanders urges Democrats to go beyond comfort zone

On Monday, Bernie Sanders and recently elected Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez embarked on a "Unity Tour" in several states to rebrand a party now further from power than it's been in decades.

Jane Peters, a retired education official, echoed Olin's sentiments.

"They're attempting to show that there's unity developing between Bernie Sanders and the party leadership". "He has to be a leader. That's what we need". But Sanders rallied support Thursday for Omaha's Democratic mayoral candidate Heath Mello, who's half his age.

"If the Democratic Party is going to succeed-and I want to see it succeed -it's gonna have to open its door to independents", Sanders told Hayes.

"Our job is to make it clear that the Democratic party is on the side of working people, will take on the billionaire class and the drug and pharmaceutical companies, and might I add in Florida the fossil fuel industry as well", yelled Sanders.

After his defeat in the primary, he endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and campaigned for her.

Even though Sanders' bid for the presidency wasn't successful, 18-year-old Shanze Arshad, who studies at Centre College in Danville, said the outspoken senator is still fighting against a racist, Islamophobic, homophobic - "every kind of phobic" - attitude that she believes Trump has brought to this country. "The national Democrats' embrace of these policies has resulted in tremendous growth for the Republican Party here in Kentucky". Sanders spoke in ME and Kentucky earlier this week and will later go to Texas, Nebraska, Utah, Arizona and Nevada. There's no shame in it, but like most politicians, Sanders pursues his own angle on things and has his own personal and ideological goals.

How the tables have turned... the DNC joins Sanders at an event that's all his feeltheBern-style. "Some Democrats are progressive and some Democrats are not". She fears what she sees happening to the country's education system, she said, but was inspired by the rally turnout. "It's not about a message". "That means rebuilding the Democratic Party, making it a grassroots party, a party from the bottom on up!" While in normal times primary challenges may be good, in this case we are wasting millions of dollars and thousands of volunteer hours that could be better spent on winning the Virginia state legislature for Democrats.

Bernie Sanders is a guy who has a lot of advice for the Democratic Party, despite the fact that he doesn't consider himself a member.

Perez endured occasional boos from the crowd as he introduced the senator, but he seemed to earn points in the room when he veered away from only bashing president Donald Trump and instead listed what he saw as the "values" of the Democratic Party, including support of labor unions, health care, public education and renewable energy initiatives. "The Establishment is like a doomsday cult; no matter how thoroughly their predictions fail to be refuted by reality, they just dig in deeper in their incoherent worldview, with devastating consequences for the rest of us", she wrote in an email. The crowd gave him a standing ovation. You can argue all you want about what people think, but the reality is somehow that didn't come across.

PEREZ: I think you're creating a false choice, Chris.
