Earlier this week in a conversation about the Sanders campaign and the behavior of his staff and supporters I referred to his campaign spokesperson as coming from the Island of Misfit Black Girls. It was a harmful and unnecessary comment and I apologize.
BREAKING – Data at the precinct level for 33 majority-Latino precincts statewide shows Sanders winning 74% of final alignment votes in these 33 precincts compared to 18% for Biden. As more data is reported, we will release updated analysis – by @MichaelHerndon_ & @mfr_romanpic.twitter.com/7UAWr9QbjE
19 candidates are expected to answer questions by AFSCME members and moderators Amanda Turkle and Jon Ralston.
The #AFSCMEForum today matters because public sector employees bargain with government. Our next President will heavily impact the future of front line @afscme workers and their families – from social workers to janitors- they’re counting on a leader to support them.
I have been advocating non-stop for healthcare across Nevada, as well as across the nation. I’ve been telling the story of my daughter, Shalynne. Two years ago, Shalynne went to the emergency room with nearly all the signs, symptoms, and risk factors of a blood clot. Because she was unable to provide proof of health insurance, she was denied the appropriate care, which ultimately led to her dying in my arms of a pulmonary embolism.
Her death at the hands of our Nation’s barbaric, profit-driven healthcare system, tragically, is an all too familiar story. The fight, not only against repealing the ACA, but for expanded and improved Medicare for All has become my calling. I didn’t choose this fight, it chose me.
I’m tired of witnessing self-proclaimed progressive congressman regurgitating the same old corporatist rhetoric, circumventing the real reason our healthcare system is failing Americans: profit.
Are you disgusted with the complete lack of morality and values shown by this GOP dominated government? Have you realized that we the people are of no concern to them? Does it infuriate you that our elected representatives work strictly for the top 1% and their special interest groups? The only way to reverse our government’s disastrous course is to remove the GOP majority in Congress. Nevada House District 3 is open for 2018. This is a crucial seat. We must keep it Democratic. I want the United States to get back to being a democracy, not an oligarchy. If you agree, then I ask you to join me. I have no rich donors, I do not come from a long line of politicians, and I am not beholden to any special interests. It‘s time to fight. The future of this country and our people are at stake.
