Betsy Sweet announced her endorsement of Bernie Sanders for President on Sunday. Sweet spoke about her endorsement at Sanders’ Portland campaign headquarters.
“We need a visionary leader who Inspires us and will galvanize us to make the impossible, possible. I believe Bernie Sanders is that person. When I look back at the causes I have fought for, the big changes I knew we could make possible, the vision for an inclusive future, Bernie has been there at every twist and turn fighting alongside me. Political pundits like to say that our proposals for a better future are crazy pipe dreams or not possible. But We, the People have a different idea. We the People know what we need to change, and we are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen.”
Sweet’s platform aligns with the Vermont Senator's support for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal and getting money out of politics.“
