Sanders warns Clinton to pick a true progressive running mate

0

WASHINGTON, D.C.: Bernie Sanders cautioned Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in an interview aired on Sunday that she will lose the backing of his many supporters unless she picks a hardline progressive as her running mate. “That means having a candidate who can excite working families, excite young people, bring them into the political process, create a large voter turnout,” the Vermont senator said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Clinton’s lead in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination is nearly insurmountable, but Sanders has continued to win primaries and draws far larger and more raucous crowds to his rallies. The 74-year-old senator has mobilized large numbers of young voters and self-identified independents—areas where Clinton hopes to make inroads before the November election.
