As many of you know, Bernie did much better than predicted on Super Tuesday, taking two states that he wasn’t predicted to, my home state of Colorado being one of them. It was a huge victory for Bernie but the fight isnt over. There are still 35 states that need to vote/caucus. Make sure to spread this even if you dont live in the following states, because you may know someone that does.

Bernie will probably take the West Coast, and a large portion of the East. The midwest and the deep south are a little bit tougher. If you get involved, and spread this message you can make a difference. My city of Colorado Springs was labeled in 2015 as the 4th most conservative city in the US but on Super Tuesday I saw what a political revolution can do. Record numbers of young voters, and just overall voting turnout in general. Caucusing can be annoying and painful, but it is well worth it. Almost everyone on my side of town went out for Bernie, it was an amazing site to see. From personal experience I know that you can make a difference. Call your friends, call your family, go volunteer. Spread the message on social media, and let the Bern spread like fire. Bernie can lead this country in the right direction.
Two days before Saturday’s Kansas caucus, Democratic party presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders took his campaign to Lawrence, Kansas. There he met for some 20 minutes with tribal leaders from the four federally recognized tribes in Kansas. There are 33 delegates up for grabs in Saturday’s caucus.
This is the second time within one week, Senator Sanders met with American Indian leadership. Earlier this week, he met with Minnesota American Indian leaders.
“THE THING TO REMEMBER ABOUT SENATOR SANDERS IS HE DID NOT SIMPLY SHOW UP TO HAVE HIS PICTURES TAKEN WITH THE TRIBAL LEADERS. HE SAT DOWN TO HAVE A MEANINGFUL DIALOGUE,” SAYS BURTON WARRINGTON, A PRAIRIE BAND POTAWATOMI NATION TRIBAL CITIZEN.
“I respect him because he is a principled person, who has been fighting for civil rights for decades. Some even call us the first Americans, yet we were not given the right to vote until 1924. I am glad he is reaching out to our people. It is time for us as Natives to exercise our right to vote.”
The tribal leaders and Senator Sanders discussed issues that impact tribes, such as water rights, health issues and climate change.
