Bernie Sanders Endorses Ben Jealous for Maryland Governor
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) threw his weight behind former NAACP President Ben Jealous' bid for Maryland governor on Thursday morning during an endorsement rally.
Sanders and Jealous appeared together at a convention center in Silver Spring, Md., where the senator lauded Jealous as the right kind of leader to push back against President Trump at the state level.
"We need, now more than ever ... a very, very different kind of leadership," Sanders said.
"And what Ben Jealous is about, he has the radical idea that maybe, just maybe, you should represent all the people, not just the top 1 percent."
