Close Finish in NV Shows Bernie Can Be Competitive Nationwide

Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, had the following response to Bernie Sanders’ close finish in the Nevada Democratic caucuses:

“A few weeks ago, skeptics rejected the idea that Bernie would even be competitive in Nevada. Yet today, he has won a substantial share of the state’s delegates, demonstrating that he can be competitive across the country. The skeptics were wrong—Bernie’s message is resonating across diverse communities and his campaign is gaining support everywhere it goes. The results in Nevada prove that we have a real race for the Democratic nomination.

“Last month, when MoveOn members voted overwhelmingly to endorse Bernie Sanders, they did so because they want real change to a system rigged in favor of giant corporations and the wealthiest few and justice for communities facing oppression. Bernie is doing more than simply challenging Hillary Clinton; he’s changing the way the American people participate in the political system, drawing record crowds and gaining the attention of young voters throughout the nation.

“Today’s results are a very strong showing. The Sanders campaign is well positioned heading to South Carolina, Super Tuesday, and beyond.”
