Quotes from the news wire:
He tries to talk to more people about the vision he articulates, and he's confident that if he can do that with enough people, he'll be successful. he would hold rallies and he would get the rolling track of how many actual people attended the rallies, just because he wanted to know what percent of the eventual electorate he actually talked to, basically, in person.
I think the party is being responsive to the grass roots. I think that's a positive thing, we've got a ways to go -- obviously the full DNC has to approve the changes that were approved here -- but I think everybody here is committed to the reforms that were passed and I look forward to a positive result in August.
Anybody who follows Bernie Sanders for one day and sees his schedule, and how rigorous it is, and how he drives everybody around him, works them into the ground with the amount of work and energy he has, I think they would understand that his chronological age is just not really a measure of his true age, bernie Sanders is an extremely energetic and vigorous person, and has more energy, I would say, than people half his age.
Working Americans chipping in a few dollars every week are changing the way campaigns in our country are financed, not only are we going to smash Secretary Clinton's personal goal of raising $50 million in the first quarter of 2016, our supporters are putting Bernie on the path to win the nomination.
At every stop, the media had an explanation for why the crowds weren't significant, 5,000 people here? 'Oh, that's Bernie's home city.' New Hampshire, 'Oh, that's next door.' We went to Minneapolis and had 4,000 people -- 'Oh, well, that's the Frost Belt. Frost Belt people like him.' Then we went to Denver, and it was 'college liberals.'.
Look at the political consultants on the air and Democratic pundits across the media. They're often Hillary Clinton supporters, right? Or former employees, that's not an indictment of anybody, but that makes them more open to a message that says, 'She's going to be successful. Bernie is not going to be successful.'.
It is obvious that older voters need more information about Bernie Sanders, his record and his agenda, while it is true that many seniors are online, many seniors are also not and this campaign a lot of younger voters have learned about Bernie's campaign on social media and online, so I think it is fair to say that younger voters are more familiar with him.
I think we're going to talk about issues of importance to the black community, i think we're going to talk about criminal justice reform. I think we're going to talk about dealing with systemic racism. I think we're going to talk about many of the economic issues that are important to African-American voters.
We're raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour that will give 50% of African-American workers a raise, these are issues that are obviously important to all of America, but in many cases because of the disproportionate amount of poverty in the African-American community, many of these issues will affect this community even more strongly.
