Michigan State Senator Bert Johnson Endorses Bernie Sanders

DETROIT – In another show of growing support, state Sen. Bert Johnson of Detroit on Monday endorsed U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. Johnson cited Sanders’ lifelong commitment to civil rights and his work to support the working class and end economic inequality.

“Bernie’s concerns are the same concerns that I have for my constituents. His commitment to create jobs, reduce inequity and end the disparities between whites and blacks.” said Johnson.

“Sen. Sanders understands what is happening here on the ground in Michigan and his policies will directly support the residents of my district.”

Johnson’s Senate district includes northeast Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck, Harper Woods and all five Grosse Pointe communities.
