Symone Sanders, Bernie's Former Press Secretary, Goes to Work on Biden's Campaign

Symone Sanders, who rose to prominence as Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) national press secretary during his 2016 presidential campaign, has signed on to work for former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 bid.

Sanders, who had been uncommitted throughout the cycle, is a CNN political commentator and has worked with Priorities USA, the largest Democratic Party Super PAC. She was a major hire for Sanders during the 2016 campaign, coming just as he faced criticism over the lack of diversity on his staff. But in the summer of 2016, she quit the campaign, at the time saying she did so of her own volition.

8. Tad Devine and Jeff Weaver didn't return either. I heard that Tad had

 

differences of opinion with Sanders concerning the conclusion of his campaign in 2016, and also who he was hiring for his 2020 staff.

10. A large part of the original Our Revolution Staff walked out because Sanders had promised them that

 

Weaver would not be involved, and then Weaver showed up and stated he was in charge.

11. She's supporting a Democrat this time.

 

She learned her lesson in 2016, and being a very smart person went with the best this time around is my guess.

17. BS hired 3rd party jill stein voters..

 

Symone Sanders is a realist.. I remember her from before.. I really admired what she had to say after the primaries.. but I can't post it here.

You can google for her tweet about what she had to say about it.. sorry to be so cryptic but..

6. I've been watching her on CNN since the last election, she's GREAT, and she doesn't mince words....

 

...when it comes to criticizing trump or the republicans. A great addition to Biden's campaign. And her old boss recently hired a Jill Stein voter to fill her previous spot.

So when someone refers to Sanders without the first name

Oh well...………………………..

Leaked documents suggested she may have been a plant or a mole inside Sanders' campaign back in 2016.
