Supporters Gather to Back Bernie Sanders

Citizen Action of the Southern Tier and grassroots organization, Binghamton for Bernie, teamed up tonight to show their support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Binghamton for Bernie lead organizer Jennifer Campoli says Sanders appeals to a broad variety of voters because of his consistent voting record.

She said his stance on progressive issues hasn't changed in over 30 years.

"College tuition, he wants free college tuition," said Campoli.

"I think a lot of students and people my age are considered about the environment and what's going on with climate change and it needs to be addressed."

Campoli said the group has two weeks left to get petitions signed for delegates.

If Bernie gets 50 percent of the vote in our congressional district, two of the delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention in July to place their vote.
