As an enthusiastic Bernie Sanders supporter living on the Olympic Peninsula and one of the myriad volunteers across the country on behalf of the Sanders presidential campaign, I would like to share my observations as a sign-waver for Sanders [“Veep Biden defends Bernie Sanders on guns, authenticity,” Nation and World, Jan. 11].
The positive support for Sanders has been overwhelming with beeps, waves and thumbs-up from diverse groups, such as Republicans for Bernie, retirees on fixed incomes, the anyone-but-Hillary people, the millennials, organic farmers, young mothers with babies — and the list goes on and on.
On numerous sign-waving days, I, along with fellow volunteers, have been heartened at how passionate and well-informed passersby are on Sanders’ positions. One tourist who stopped to talk to us was in the process of an 18,000 mile journey traveling throughout America and wanted to proudly show off a “Bernie Sanders for President ” bumper sticker.
Bernie has gone from being virtually unknown a few months ago to become the most electable Democratic candidate today. From what I am seeing and hearing, Democratic- leaning Washington voters should be at their local neighborhood precincts in record numbers 10 a.m. Saturday, March 26, to sign in for Sanders, then let their voices be heard, loud and clear, to get Bernie Sanders on the ballot.
