Former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders campaigns for Omaha mayoral candidate Heath Mello

Tom Perez, the new chair of the DNC - and Sanders's partner on the so-called "unity tour" - was not welcomed kindly.

Sanders said,"I am an independent", as Perez sat next to him. Many supporters of Clinton's campaign believe she failed not because she declined to attack the rich, but primarily because of outside factors beyond her control - the last-minute letter from FBI Director James Comey; the foreign intervention by Vladimir Putin and WikiLeaks; the archaic nature of the Electoral College.

"Not sure you've seen someone from the Democratic National Committee in your community twice in eight weeks", he said.

The main focus is to unite and grow the Democratic party.

"That means rebuilding the Democratic Party, making it a grassroots party, a party from the bottom on up", said Sanders, who himself is not a registered Democrat but describes himself as a "democratic socialist" and caucuses with the party in the Senate.

"You don't need a PHD in economics to know that it is immoral and bad economics to support legislation that would through hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians off of the healthcare that they have would do serious damage to the economy here", Sanders said.

"If Democrats think the path forward following the 2016 election is to support candidates who substitute their own judgement and ideology for that of their female constituents, they have learned all the wrong lessons and are bound to lose". Chairman Perez called the President's proposed budget "inhumane" then added an expletive.

Trump has also been bragging about his TV ratings, claiming them to be the biggest since the World Trade Center was attacked. And only 34% approved of his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner having major posts in the administration.

"We need to transform the Democratic Party, not just a party of the east coast and the west coast but a party for all 50 states", Sanders said.

"The Democratic Party must stand up for working people in every state in this country including Arizona", he said.

Texas Republicans are deeply skeptical the state's Democrats will make inroads in 2018, even after the narrower-than-usual presidential race in the state.

DETROW: The goal of the tour is to tell people like Bernardo that the DNC is on their side.

TOM PEREZ: So for me, I think the best way to make sure that we remain united is to talk about the issues that people care the most about.

"No, it's you and you and you", he said, recounting how public outcry helped defeat the GOP heath care plan.

He said his road trip this week with Perez was not about sending a message of unity, but rather about focusing attention on the issues and encouraging voter participation. "I say yes, we do". Sanders' wing of the Democratic Party represents a rejection of these principles - an embrace of socialism, which may be growing more popular but actually represents a threat to both justice and prosperity.
