MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is doubling down on his endorsement of Rep. Keith Ellison for the next Chair of the DNC.

Sanders has started a signature petition on his website, called “Join Bernie Sanders and Support Keith Ellison for DNC Chair.”

On the website, Sanders criticizes the Democratic Party’s inaction in taking on Wall Street and the billionaire class, saying the party has to decide which side it’s on.

“We must also do everything we can to elect Democrats in Congress in 2018, and to take back the White House in 2020. We need a Democratic National Committee led by a progressive who understands the dire need to listen to working families, not the political establishment or the billionaire class. That is why I support Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and why I hope you’ll join me in advocating for him to lead the DNC,” Sanders said in a statement on the petition website.

The petition urges people to add their name to the page if they agree with Sanders, saying “we’ll deliver your signature to members of the DNC to send a strong message about why Keith should be DNC Chair.”

  1. It is heartwarming to see a full-fledged communist like Bernie supporting our elite Socialist local criminals like Keith Ellison. Last time we trusted him to oversee dispensing large sums of money Keith hired a north Minneapolis black gang family at $320,000 a year to embezzle and defraud millions, over a period of many years.putting Minneapolis Community Action into bankruptcy and receivership here in the Socialist Welfare village. Keith has the full support of his local Mosque and the over 10,000 non-white, illiterate, non-English speaking, unskilled, unemployable, malcontents imported to the Twin Cities each year on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, and country of origin using the guise of refugee or asiliee: They are immediately placed on multi-generational welfare and are entitled to free healthcare, free housing, EBT cards, cash payments, interpreters, legal aid, schools, and social services, … so they are sure to support more free stuff here in the Socialist Welfare Village. Go Keith, we need more entitlements and non-workers to re-populate the Village and stamp out the last vestiges of private enterprise.

    I love it. Dig up Chavez and have him run it or import Putin or Merkel. When they’re done with this sharp left there will be no one left in the democratic party.

  3. John Reilly says:

    Keith Ellison is a MUSLIM, and this is exactly what the Democratic party has become….an absolute SOCIALIST PARTY, True Americans should be able to see right through the smoke screen of deception by these morons.

    God, I hate Sander’s face: such a hunched over, bitter man. Like a cantakeous Woody Allen.
