FEATURING NORMAN SOLOMON – When Senator Bernie Sanders officially ended his Presidential campaign, the only thing he had to offer his millions of disappointed supporters was the imperative that “we must continue the political revolution.” Just about a month after the Democratic National Convention which nominated his rival Hillary Clinton, Sanders kicked off a new organization dubbed “Our Revolution,” intended to focus the work of his supporters into making the ideals of his campaign become a reality.
But trouble dogged the organization right from the start. A number of staff members of the group resigned after Sanders brought his campaign managed Jeff Weaver to lead Our Revolution.
