Senator Bernie Sanders has won the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club’s endorsement for president. After listening from representatives from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the club decided to show the support for Sanders.
Here are 3 of the top reasons the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club supports Bernie Sanders:
Standing firm for Income Equaltiy we stand with the Progressive candidate for President.
Remembering Hillary Clinton’s being against Marriage Equlity for “Moral, Religious and Traditional” grounds and her view that marriage was a “sacred bond between a man and a woman" throughout her days in the US Senate.
While Clinton supported the passage of DOMA, Sanders proudly voted against it. Our trust goes to a true, consistant progressive who has never thrown us under the bus.
