Killer Mike explains why he believes Senator Vincent Fort is the best choice to be the next mayor of Atlanta.
winning this campaign will send a strong message to the establishment that we will not give up on creating a government – at the local, state and federal level – that works for all of us, not just the 1%.
As some of you may be aware Bernie Sanders istravelling to Atlanta on Saturday to support former state Sen. Vincent Fort’s race for mayor. As the linked article notes Fort was a Bernie backer in the primaries and also:
Polls show his popularity has soared, and his policy priorities are gaining traction. He was the lone sponsor of a bill to provide universal healthcare four years ago. He introduced a similar version this month that attracted 16 co-sponsors – about one-third of the chamber’s Democratic caucus.
Knowing all this I still did not feel I knew enough about Fort so went and educated myself. What I’ve found will be scattered through this post and then in the comments section. Conveniently enough, we can start with a video titled ‘Who Is Vincent Fort?’.
