For me, having done all I could to advance Bernie Sanders' position over the past 4 years, this is the first Mainstream quasi-endorsement for Bernie that I have seen. It is not all-out positive, but for its city of origin (Toledo, Ohio), I believe it to be quite significant as a harbinger or bell weather indicator for what is to come on the editorial pages of the great state of Ohio, which is where 7 US Presidents were born, second only to Virginia, with 8 Presidents' birthplaces.

I want to present the entire statement, rather than just put it out as a Quick Link. If you want to help Bernie early on, especially in the 4 first primary states, please share this with the editorial page editor of two or three of the newspapers in your area. Thank you, and please do comment!)

He has raised the most money of all the Democratic candidates, by far some $95 million in 2019 from 5 million donations though the average contribution to Bernie is $18. He raised $34.5 million in the last quarter alone. He got 40,000 new donors on the last day of the year.

When Mr. Sanders renounced bundlers and PACs it was said that he had unilaterally disarmed himself in the money race. Instead he is killing it.

Bernie Sanders gets nurses endorsement in Oakland (16 Nov 2019) Senator Bernie Sanders pitched his plan to provide healthcare to all Americans through his Medicare for All program if he's elected president ...

Here is a big endorsement from the Nurses Union in California earlier in 2019.

In this effort to elect Bernie Sanders, I am really focused on the editorial pages of America.

I hope I could convince you, the reader, to write your own 150 word letter to the editor in support of Bernie Sanders.

This will create a ripple effect that will only add to his winning impact; it doesn't cost money like television ads; it is straight from the heart rather than from corporate motivations.

Most important at this time, a massive bunch of letters to the editor all over the USA supporting Bernie has the cumulative effecting of making editors of papers realize that sweeping Bernie's successes under the rug or burying them in the back pages, is a foolish and ultimately self destructive thing to do for newspapers struggling to not be irrelevant.
