Sanders urges Democrats to reach out to Trump supporters
The DNC's unity tour this week, headlined jointly by party Chairman Tom Perez and Vermont Sen.
Put simply, this is Sanders' party now. "Something compelled you to find the space and time to be here and I want you to ask yourself what that reason is", said Claire Cummings of the Maine Young Democrats, to growing cheers. "Some Democrats are progressive and some Democrats are not". Bernie Sanders from swinging through the Bluegrass State Tuesday night, where a crowd welcomed him with deafening cheers and standing ovations.
It was practically a shiv in Ossoff's back, but what's really mysterious is why Sanders did it. There's a lot of frustration going back to previous year with the DNC, with Democrats in Congress from the people that Perez and other Democrats need to have energized.

"The cornerstone of that argument, and the way Cuomo sees himself as different and potentially more viable than more obvious 2020 prospects like Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Sherrod Brown or even home-state Sen".
Most of the 17 candidates Sanders' political action committee has endorsed this year, including Mello, are in their 30s and 40s and generally reflect Sanders' call for newer faces in a variety of political positions. That, apparently, doesn't disqualify you from being a progressive. "I have been on airlines many, many times where people have been asked to leave".
In the same interview, Sanders said that they had to "have the guts to point the finger at the ruling class of this country - the billionaire class and Wall Street - and say 'You know what, your greed is destroying this country'".

"It can't be just symbolic, it has got to be real", Mr. Sanders said. This means building or strengthening state and local parties in red states or red areas of blue states where Democrats are not competitive at the local level.
The Vermont senator's tour mission is addressing voters still feeling disenfranchised by the DNC as he helps lay the groundwork for the Democratic Party's 50-state strategy. He might be right.
Shouts like "Bernie should have won", were yelled sporadically from the crowds, filled with mostly Democrats and Millennials, who showed strong support for Sanders during last year's primaries. One might argue on the other side that the most important thing for Democrats to do is fight Trump and the radicalism that has taken over the GOP. It's hard to argue that supporting a Democrat for mayor who doesn't believe in reproductive rights accomplishes that goal, but supporting a Democratic House candidate who hasn't sufficiently demonstrated his antipathy to Goldman Sachs doesn't. "You can't just be a West Coast party and an East Coast party".
