Bernie Sanders Backs Mayoral Candidate Who Declared ‘I Am Antifa’


Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the runner-up to the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has endorsed Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Ianarrone, a far-left challenger to Ted Wheeler who has previously described herself as “Antifa.” Sanders revealed he was backing Iannarone in a Thursday addendum to his down-ballot endorsement list. The intro to the list reads in part: “We need to continue building and strengthening our movement from the ground up by electing more progressives to state and local positions. Because the truth is that the victories we accomplish in this election will lay the groundwork for the future of our political revolution.”
