Do you live in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District & wish that Senator Bernie Sanders represented you in Congress? Well, you might be getting the second best thing. Bernie’s son, Levi Sanders, has announced that he is running for the open House seat in New Hampshire. In 2018, the new #FeelTheBern is #VoteLeviSanders.
Never heard of Levi? He served as his father’s Senior Policy Strategist during his 2016 Democratic Presidential Primary Campaign. Why don’t we let Levi’s Official Campaign Statement serve as your introduction to the New Hampshire candidate:
“After much thought and consultation with my family, friends, and the people of New Hampshire, I am excited to announce today that I am running for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st District. This is a unique opportunity to listen to the hard working men and women of New Hampshire about the issues that matter to them.
“The majority of voters in New Hampshire, and around this country, agree that we need a Medicare For All healthcare system which guarantees healthcare to every man, women, and child without out of pocket expenses. We need an educational system which says that whether you are rich or poor, you have the ability to go to a public college and/or university tuition free. We need to demand that we have a minimum wage which allows people to work forty hours a week without being in poverty. It is urgent that we address the opioid problem which is at a crisis level in New Hampshire. We must demand that women finally earn the same pay as men. It is unacceptable that we haven’t found the political courage to pass sensible gun legislation. That time is up – we must be bold and unwavering in our fight for the people.
“For 15 years, New Hampshire has been my family’s home. For over 17 years, I have represented the working class who have been beaten up by the system. It is time to demand that we have a system which represents the 99% and not the 1% who have never had it so good.
“This campaign is about each and everyone of us, who strive each and everyday, to make this great state and country a better place in which to live.”
