'He's not going to be the nominee.' Miami's House Dems aren't considering Bernie [View all]

Bernie Sanders may have emerged with the most votes from the first two contests in the 2020 Democratic primary, but Miamiís House Democrats echoed many lawmakers in Washington this week when they said itís far too soon to consider the prospect of a democratic socialist as the partyís nominee.

Sandersí rise has set off alarm bells in the House of Representatives, where Democrats won a majority in 2018 in part by defeating Republicans in districts President Donald Trump won in 2016.

Even asking the question about whether they would support Sanders elicited eye rolls and stone-faced stares from three of Miamiís four congressional Democrats.

ďHeís not going to be the nominee,Ē Rep. Donna Shalala said when asked if she would campaign for Sanders should he win the nomination. ďThatís hypothetical question and since I donít think heís going to be the nominee I donít have to answer the question.Ē
