Why? I guess Bernie decided Bryce was more viable?
Why now? No clue.

Bernie is a pragmatist so im sure he has good reason. Id guess on one hand he feels Myers has no chance, like her or not, but he also must see some good in Bryce or he would of stayed out. It could be he just wants to give a couple token establishment endorsements, or sees Bryce as not really corrupted and a potential ally, or maybe its just he thinks Bryce can beat Ryan and wants to make it as likely as possible.

Bernie will never give up half a loaf if he knows he cant get a full one and I trust his political instincts, even if I have another opinion or view, knowing hes playing the big game and has more inside info.

I like Myers too, but that doesnt mean shes the best candidate or that Bryce is an establishment tool, it just means her views more mirror my own, but that doesnt make me a good candidate either.

Politics is tough and complicated, liking someone is simple and easy, so ill accept bernies choice of candidate over my choice of nice person. I mean look at Warren, id take a less agreeable but more brazen person in her place these days and maybe thats what Bryce is over Myers.

I’d argue that Myers might have been the “best candidate” if she’d jumped in a few days earlier before Bryce capitalized on all of the early attention (and money).

Myers has actually won some political victories, while Bryce has not.

But the reality is that Bryce has more support than Myers. Hopefully that support will translate to a victory and , if so, hopefully that victory will reveal a progressive agenda.

<y Apologies if I gave the impression I was giving actual reasons and not just off hand examples since people seemed so dumbfounded by Bernies choice.

If I had to guess, id say its because Bryce has crossover appeal and thus a better shot at beating Rand than Myers, since republicans prefer white males who do 'manly' work over teachers, women and public servants.

Its just a guess, but unless Bernie is throwing the Dems a bone to keep the peace, I have to assume there is something he sees in this race, since on paper Myers is more a Berniecrat than Bryce, but Bryce seems to know how to play the game better.

Or maybe Bernie got bamboozled who knows, no one is perfect 😉

My Apologies if I gave the impression I was giving actual reasons and not just off hand examples since people seemed so dumbfounded by Bernies choice.

looking at the data id say this is the real reason

Bryce seems to know how to play the game better having raised a lot of money where Myers has raised almost nothing and to boot is attacking Bryce for the partys/medias actions and is trying to tear him down talking about fake polls and trips to DC instead of just building herself up. which in my eyes makes her look like a poor candidate even if a nice person with excellent views.

I like her but I think Bryce is showing to be the stronger politician and I think that why Bernie is backing him, Paul is going to be tough and Bryce looks like the best shot.
