Bernie Sanders, DNC Chair Visit Deep-Red Kentucky

Bernie Sanders, DNC Chair Visit Deep-Red Kentucky

A reminder - Sanders won the Democratic Caucuses in ME, defeating Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

Even though Sanders' bid for the presidency wasn't successful, 18-year-old Shanze Arshad, who studies at Centre College in Danville, said the outspoken senator is still fighting against a racist, Islamophobic, homophobic - "every kind of phobic" - attitude that she believes Trump has brought to this country.

As a part of their "Come Together and Fight Back" tour, Sen.

The former presidential candidate's speech included marching orders for his progressive followers. What we have to do as Democrats is articulate very clearly that Donald Trump's vision for America is a vision for the top 1 percent of 1 percent.

"Health care is absolutely a right in this country, or should be", Perez said.

Montes is suing the federal government and the USA Today report is now being disputed by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Trump has kept it in place and made sympathetic remarks about its beneficiaries, angering some immigration hardliners.

Other rallies will be held in Arizona, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Nebraska and Utah.

Perez, the former Obama labor secretary who is regarded as belonging to the Democratic establishment, defeated Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison - a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter - in February for the DNC chair. Some in the crowd also booed the first mention of the Democratic National Committee.

Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, was enormously popular in Maine Democratic circles past year, winning the party caucuses over Clinton after huge crowds of supporters turned out in Portland and other towns.

"Our job is to take the progressive message out into the world, go beyond our zone of comfort, start with working people", Sanders said.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper, the Vermont independent said the key to ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was to forgo unilateral action and instead convince Russian Federation and Iran to withdraw their support for the dictator at the heart of the more than six-year-long war.

Troy Jackson, a logger from the northern Maine town of Allagash and the Maine Democratic Senate leader, said it's time that Democrats work harder for those communities.

Some attendees say it's time to unite the party.

Jackson also said he's "heard from a lot of pundits that the average American feels powerless".

Sanders echoed promises he made during his presidential campaign a year ago - proposals to raise the minimum wage, make public colleges tuition-free, close the pay-gap between men and women and raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations.

"You don't need a PHD in economics to know that it is immoral and bad economics to support legislation that would through hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians off of the healthcare that they have would do serious damage to the economy here", Sanders said.
