Team Sanders accuses Clinton of running 'smear campaign'

By Jonathan Easley

Bernie Sanders’s campaign manager on Thursday defended comments the Vermont senator made about Hillary Clinton not being qualified to be president, accusing her of running a "smear campaign."

Jeff Weaver said Sanders is prepared to hit back if Clinton attacks him unfairly.

“If they want to engage in that kind of a campaign, they’re going to see how a real New Yorker fights back,” Weaver said on MSNBC.

“There’s been a lot of innuendo and unfair attacks, but they’ve really started to step them up, and as Sen. Sanders just said, he’s not going to take it,” he continued.

“He’s the son of Brooklyn, born in New York. He knows how the rough and tumble of New York, and if that’s the kind of campaign they want to run, he’s fully prepared to run it.”

Bernie billboards prove it: This year, California matters

The presidential race is on its way to California, and the signs are here for all to see — literally.

The California Nurses Association, one of the biggest players in state Democratic politics, is going big this week with Bernie Sanders billboards in the Bay Area.

The union gave Sanders his first national endorsement in August, when the socialist senator from Vermont was just starting his campaign.

“We started it here, and we plan to conclude it here,” said California Nurses Association Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro.

It’s an indication of one of the many ways in which 2016 is turning out to be a strange year in politics — when’s the last time anyone can remember a meaningful presidential primary in California?

This time, both Democrats and Republicans are likely to have something to say about their party’s nominee on election day June 7.

It's 6:49 PM and we are still in Clark County's Caucus (Las Vegas, NV) but we did flip the vote!

Okay so here is what I can tell you so far. People have been here since 8AM. People were arrested for something this morning. Bernie got majority of the vote and we denied the motions for recounts.

Currently we are waiting for the respected campaigns to provide a list of elected state delegates.

People are agitated at this long process.

Bernie's campaign is bringing pizza to everyone.

I am being told we cannot be held past 8PM.


Thank you Clark County Bernie people!

We HAVEN'T won Nevada YET

No pledged delegates (the national delegates) from Nevada have yet been allocated. They will be allocated based on the results of the District/State conventions happening in about a month. So the delegates elected today need to go to those conventions and vote for Bernie. If we keep all our delegates and get them to vote there, we have won Nevada. It's not over yet.

"..Clinton campaign in Nevada is trying to remove the fair and balanced credentials committee so she

can convert every person who attended the caucus on Feb. 20 to an alternate, virtually guaranteeing Clinton the Nevada win (since the caucus is not binding)."

Here's more found on Reddit.
