Sanders Urges Party to Go Beyond

"The list will be used "to transform the Democratic Party into a party that stands for working families", he said, implying that he wants his new group, Our Revolution, to decide which candidates will get access to that list and reap its benefits". "That's actually really important considering what happened a year ago", said Cynthia Busch, chairwoman of the Broward Democratic Party.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ran as a Democrat during the 2016 presidential election and took part in the Democratic National Committee unity tour, on Tuesday declared, "I'm an Independent", The Hill reports.

The crowd even booed Bernie at the very mention of Tom Perez. Sanders spoke in ME and Kentucky earlier this week and will later go to Texas, Nebraska, Utah, Arizona and Nevada. The pair appears Wednesday at the James L. Knight Center in Miami.

Perez was secretary of labor under President Barack Obama and became party chairman in February.

It takes more than being a younger Democrat for a candidate to gain Sanders' support. He is, after all, running in a district that Republicans have routinely won with more than 60 percent of the vote.

SHAPIRO: Scott, you're in Texas, which doesn't seem like the most obvious place for Democrats to focus given the politics of the state. Five of the six members of Congress who represent parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties are Democrats.

But serious differences between the Democratic Party's factions remain. Democrats are also setting their sights on the governor's mansion. A good candidate for Democrats in Kansas might be a awful candidate for Democrats in NY or California.

More than 55 tons of frozen Banquet meals may contain Salmonella
Products affected by the latest recall of 110,817lb of frozen chicken nugget meals were sent to retail stores across the US. Each frozen meal is packaged in 7.4 oz. trays with "BANQUET Chicken Nuggets with Mac & Cheese" written on the front.

But fixing the party's ills is far more complicated than installing new leaders or putting people from different camps on stage together. But Sanders was rallying support on Thursday for Omaha's Democratic mayoral candidate Heath Mello, who's half his age. However, it is not surprising that Perez and Sanders say nothing about the track record of the Democratic Party. He called for living wages, protecting Planned Parenthood, fighting income inequality and a single-payer health care system.

DETROW: Perez feels confident that he can just talk to these voters and win them over, just communicate that he's pretty progressive himself. When MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes asked Perez if the Democratic Party supported a Medicare-for-all expansion, Perez evaded the question and promoted the virtues of the Affordable Care Act.

The pro-life group estimates that more than 23 million Democrats in the US are pro-life. Tom Perez was not included in the survey, but he is widely viewed as an "establishment" Democrat by Bernie Sanders supporters, and establishment Democrats, in general, did not fare well in the survey. It's not for show.

"No, president Trump. We are not gonna give you and other billionaires hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks and then cut back on education, food stamps, or the needs of our children or the sick", Sanders said. That is why we need strong state Democratic parties to help with recruitment. In Grand Prairie, Sanders' supporters started lining up around 7 am for the event at noon.

Last summer, Democrats for Life Director Kristen Day urged the party to "open the big tent" to pro-life Democrats.
