Don't forget the down-ticket races

President Sanders would be the best result, of course, but President Clinton plus a congress full of Bernie Dems would be better than President Clinton plus a congress full of Turd Way Dems voting with the Republicans 95% of the time. I don't even want to think about President Trump.

The downticket races were all county and municipal. There is no Democratic candidate for 3rd district representative, and only an unopposed Democratic candidate for US Senate. There were no races for governor and other state offices on my ballot.

is if they put up Turd Wayers as candidates, put Bernie Dems up to primary them. Then let's see who wins. We need more Liberals in Congress anyway. We do not need folks who only say that they are Liberals, and then act like RepubliCONs.

no cross-over voting in the primary. I did look up the candidate - which was easy because there were just a few dems running down here.
