Endorsing progressive, down-ballot candidates in state and local races is key to transforming the country, Sanders said.

Touting the upcoming election as the most important in the modern history of our country, Bernie Sanders announced his support for various progressive candidates in state House and state Senate races.

The outcome of state races are important to the support and success of the fight to transform the country, he said.

“We need to continue building and strengthening our movement from the ground up by electing more progressives to state and local positions,” Sanders said. “Because the truth is that the victories we accomplish in this election will lay the groundwork for the future of our political revolution.”
