More Endorsements

On Monday, Citizen Action of New York endorsed Bernie. The grassroots organization of 30,000 fights for economic, social and environmental justice and an end to electoral corruption.

On Thursday, Democracy for America threw its support to Sanders as a result of 87% of the 270,000 votes cast online between Dec.7th -- 8th going to him. DFA came out of Howard Dean's 2004 presidential run and has a million members.

Also, on Thursday, the Communication Workers of America endorsed Bernie. Its 700,000 members will work for Bernie under the leadership of their former president, Larry Cohen, who resigned from that office to work full time for Sanders.

New Poll Results Released on Monday

Bernie continues to close in on Clinton's lead in Iowa. This Bloomberg/Selzer poll shows Hillary at 48% and Bernie at 39%. Interesting comment: "Bernie Sanders has proven to be a worthy adversary," J. Ann Selzer, founder of the firm that conducted the poll, told Bloomberg. "He's attracting people who, as a coalition, can be a force to be reckoned with, if he can turn them out."

Nailing Down Iowa

Saturday, December 11th-- A Des Moines Register report: In Anamoosa, Sanders, back in Iowa for the first time in nearly a month, listened more than he talked at a packed forum on racial justice and prison reform. "I have a long speech but I'm not going to give it," he said.

He served largely as emcee and moderator for a panel discussion that featured a former Ohio state senator, Nina Turner, and two men who had served time in prison and now counsel other ex-convicts. They focused in particular on ways corrections systems set up parolees to fail, such as releasing them back into their former communities with no money, skills or job prospects.

"What this campaign is about is not sound bites. It is attempting to address some of the most important issues facing our country. It is an attempt to force discussion on issues that are often swept under the rug," Sanders said.

Then on to Clinton, Dubuque, and Waterloo.
