Vulnerable Senator Gary Peters let slip Wednesday he will support whoever Democrats nominate for President – even if it is socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders: “I’m supporting whoever the Democratic candidate for president is.”
Washington Post: Prospect of Sanders as presidential nominee divides Senate Democrats
After Saturday’s result in the Nevada caucuses with Sanders winning a convincing victory, the Vermont Senator has been established as the clear front-runner in the Democratic primary.
Peters has previously signaled his openness to Sanders’ socialist platform, stating “you’re going to have Medicare for All down the road” as well as stating his support for “aspects” of the job-crushing Green New Deal.
“Gary Peters has lurched so far left, his views are nearly indistinguishable from Bernie Sanders’ views – but now he’s made it official. Michigan won’t tolerate these two far-left ideologues pushing socialist policies that will destroy Michigan jobs.” -SLF Communications Director Jack Pandol
