Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says he doesn't know whether Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff, who came in first Tuesday in a closely watched Georgia special election, is a progressive.
“I don’t know,” he said Tuesday in Louisville, Ky., The Wall Street Journal said Wednesday. “If you run as a Democrat, you’re a Democrat.”
“Some Democrats are progressive, and some Democrats are not,” the 2016 presidential candidate added.Sanders: I don?t know if Ossoff is a progressive | TheHill
can't believe he actually said this. So, the guy that ran as Democrat for president, after saying that he'd be a hypocrite if he ever ran as a Democrat. Then, changed his party back to Independent after the election. Is now saying "if you run as a Democrat you're a Democrat"? This is the kind of crap that pisses people off about Sanders. Here the Dems are with a fighting chance to flips a district from red to blue. It's going to be close and many people feel that Ossof doesn't have a chance. So Sanders decides on the first day that the run off election campaign begins to run his big fking mouth and potentially deny Ossof progressive support. I can't wait for him to do a town hall somewhere close to where I live so I can give him a piece of my mind.
