More About Jeff Weaver
“Bernie Sanders would have defeated Donald Trump if he were the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016 and remains the strongest candidate to prevail in 2020, Sanders’s campaign manager argues in a new memoir in which he also seeks to settle some scores with other politicians and the media.”
Jeff Weaver discusses his new book.
Jeff Weaver argues, “There is a coalition of the Democratic Party. There are a variety of viewpoints. I think the center of that party is moving to the left. Will it be ultimately more left than some people on the right side of the Democratic Party think is appropriate or the donor class thinks is appropriate? That's certainly possible.”
Jeff Weaver argues, “Bernie Sanders has not made a decision yet about whether to run. But I think if we're going to be successful in defeating [President Trump] and ending this abysmal administration we're going to have to nominate a progressive, certainly."”
Jeff Weaver talks about the hunger in American for Bernie Sanders’s vision.
