MoveOn on Sanders’ victory in Michigan
Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, had the following response to Bernie Sanders’ impressive victory in the Michigan Democratic primary:
“Bernie Sanders’ come-from-behind win in Michigan tonight should serve as a warning to anyone who wants to declare the Democratic primary race over before all voters have had their say.
“This victory proves that Bernie Sanders’ message is continuing to gain traction with voters across the country. The American people are fed up with a corrupt and broken political system, believe change is possible, and are ready to make it happen.
“This win – along with recent national polling showing Bernie gaining support and amazing grassroots fundraising numbers – shows that the political revolution he is leading has powerful momentum with most states yet to weigh in. MoveOn members are excited to keep mobilizing in support of Bernie. This is a campaign that can win.”
