With a record-setting 78.6 percent of 340,665 votes cast by the MoveOn membership, Senator Bernie Sanders has won MoveOn.org Political Action’s endorsement for president with the largest total and widest margin in MoveOn history…
MoveOn only endorses candidates for office after formal membership votes, and in this case, the outcome of our internal democratic process was overwhelming: the vast majority of voting MoveOn members want the organization to support Bernie, so that’s what we’re going to do. We’ve pledged to run a 100% positive campaign. And then regardless of who wins the nomination, MoveOn will support the eventual Democratic nominee in the general election to keep a Republican out of the White House, because the vast majority of members have made clear that it’s what they want MoveOn to do.
Translation: “Sorry, Hillary. It’s out of our hands!” They also endorsed Obama in ’08. It’s pretty much the Anybody But Hillary Award.
I wholeheartedly endorse MoveOn’s endorsement of Bernie Sanders. Anything to keep a Democrat out of the White House.
