In 2016, on a very careful read of exits and polling data - I knew if the “Very Left” stuck with Bernie they would lose.

If they had chosen a new leader to promote their movement - they would have built on some of their momentum

Nina Turner will further sink their movement
Nina Turner

Was brought on CNN to critique the Biden/Harris campaign

Really Anderson? @andersoncooper

He speaks in yells
He isn’t always right on the policy

He doesn’t quite live in the ideals he proclaims
Now the movement wants to jump from Sanders to Nina

Talk about a self own

Didn’t you just elect a midwestern, young woman with a compelling story life story who can speak passionately about poverty and injustice
