Why Sanders Is a Good Fit for Warren Backers

The new Ready to Fight organization wants The Peoples’ values to be represented in the 2016 presidential election. They support all of Elizabeth Warren’s legislative efforts, and they support Bernie Sanders for president.

Why Sanders Is a Good Fit for Warren Backers

On Friday, Ready for Warren is launching a new grassroots initiative called Ready to Fight — and Ready to Fight is endorsing Bernie Sanders as its candidate for president.

Why?

Because while Warren is the champion who inspired this movement, the draft effort was never just about her — it’s about her message and the values she represents. Bernie Sanders has caught fire in a way that’s reminiscent of the draft Warren movement itself — from the Internet to town halls in Iowa, Sanders has captured the imagination and support of people looking for a real progressive challenger in the 2016 Democratic primary.

One reason we’re witnessing such a surge of support for politicians like Sanders and Warren is that they have given voice to Americans’ deeply-felt frustration that the game is rigged against working people and stacked in favor of corporations and the very wealthy.

    Still, you're right that it's uphill.

    What did Teddy Roosevelt (probably) say when he lead the Rough Riders up San Juan Hill? Charge!!!

    I would so much love for this to be the beginning of a really progressive movement. It’s going to be an uphill battle to topple Hillary – But hopefully Bernie and Elizabeth will encourage more progressives to run for House and Senate offices to end this usurption of the democratic process.
