Bernie Sanders

After another busy weekend, it’s now the last day before Super Tuesday. The media is furiously trying to figure out what Buttigieg’s departure means for the race. There are a plethora of articles today – a mix of positive, neutral and negative. We did our best to curate them for you below.

Please be kind to Buttigieg supporters, and welcome and encourage any supporters who may be looking for a new candidate as the field continues to thin to join our movement. We need as many supporters as possible to beat Trump and propel Bernies’ inclusive vision for the country to the White House.

JOIN US ON SUPER TUESDAY

MARCH 3: SUPER TUESDAY MEGA STREET CANVAS

Bernie’s historic wins in the first 3 states has him poised to expand his lead on Super Tuesday. The establishment is shaking in its boots.

But we know that no matter what happens, the media will spin this, and the establishment will continue to throw roadblocks in Bernie’s way. Momentum in other states is critical, but visibility on the streets of Philadelphia can only come from our grassroots movement: no one can spread the word like we can.

We’ll meet at City Hall at 4PM this Tuesday, March 3rd, for a huddle and training, and then disperse in teams, set up tabling “hubs” throughout the city: waving signs, talking to voters, signing up volunteers, and showing Philly that support for Bernie is STRONG. Bernie must be Philly’s candidate!

  • 4:00PM — Huddle and training at City Hall
  • 4:30-4:45PM — Split into teams (most people will leave City Hall)
  • 5:00PM — Set up tabling hubs and begin canvassing!

Tabling Hub Locations

  • Meet us here if you can’t make it to City Hall!
  • Broad & Cecil B Moore
  • Broad & Passyunk
  • 30th & Market (30th St. Sta)
  • 18th & Walnut (Rittenhouse)
  • 15th & Market (City Hall)

What to Bring

  • Bernie gear, signs, flags
  • If you’ve got a clipboard, bring it along
  • If you’ve got a light folding/camping table, let us know — it could be helpful!


Bernie wins another 11 delegates, breaks fundraising records and is poised for success as we go into Super Tuesday.

Bernie Sanders in South Carolina

Bernie won another 11 delegates yesterday, bringing his total to 56. Although the campaign did not expect to win the state, it was pleased with the results, which still have Bernie leading as we go into Super Tuesday. Once again, this is all thanks to you.

Bernie was interviewed on Face The Nation this morning and discussed Super Tuesday, campaign finance, coronavirus, and AIPAC.

Bernie is viewed by some as holding the advantage for this week’s contests, with strong polling numbers for delegate-rich California and Texas, where his support from Latinx voters is strong.

JOIN US ON SUPER TUESDAY

MARCH 3: SUPER TUESDAY MEGA STREET CANVAS

Bernie’s historic wins in the first 3 states has him poised to expand his lead on Super Tuesday. The establishment is shaking in its boots.

But we know that no matter what happens, the media will spin this, and the establishment will continue to throw roadblocks in Bernie’s way. Momentum in other states is critical, but visibility on the streets of Philadelphia can only come from our grassroots movement: no one can spread the word like we can.

We’ll meet at City Hall at 4PM this Tuesday, March 3rd, for a huddle and training, and then disperse in teams, set up tabling “hubs” throughout the city: waving signs, talking to voters, signing up volunteers, and showing Philly that support for Bernie is STRONG. Bernie must be Philly’s candidate!

  • 4:00PM — Huddle and training at City Hall
  • 4:30-4:45PM — Split into teams (most people will leave City Hall)
  • 5:00PM — Set up tabling hubs and begin canvassing!

Tabling Hub Locations

  • Meet us here if you can’t make it to City Hall!
  • Broad & Cecil B Moore
  • Broad & Passyunk
  • 30th & Market (30th St. Sta)
  • 18th & Walnut (Rittenhouse)
  • 15th & Market (City Hall)

What to Bring

  • Bernie gear, signs, flags
  • If you’ve got a clipboard, bring it along
  • If you’ve got a light folding/camping table, let us know — it could be helpful!
