Voting

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks to supporters with the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals Mohegan Sun Pocono, Plains, Pa., Monday April 15, 2019. The stop was part of his tour to emphasize that Democrats' clearest and strongest path to victory in 2020 runs through the upper Midwest -- and that Bernie Sanders is by far the best-positioned candidate to win these states and defeat Donald Trump. At rallies in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania -- three states that flipped and voted for Donald Trump in 2016 -- Sanders will deliver a message focused on fighting against unfair trade deals that undermine workers wages and enrich CEOs, rebuilding and strengthening unions and guaranteeing health care as a right to all with Medicare for All.
