Bernie Sanders’ surge has rattled the party elders, Nevada, ready lift pulse

Bernie Sanders’ surge in the national polls and success in the early voting States has the democratic party, the oldest increasingly concerned about the self-proclaimed democratic socialist potential to their candidates — as he is on the way in this weekend’s Nevada group sessions with a massive lead and cement is aiming for his front-runner status.

Establishment Democrats, both inside and outside of Washington have sounded the alarms about Sanders’ success, warning that his nomination would pave the way for President Trump re-election, and possibly hurt Democrats chances of maintaining the majority in the house and the majority in the Senate.


Most recently, the former Senate majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in this week’s nudge of the center-left presidential candidate appeared to merge, finally, about a candidate who can win, to secure enough delegates for the nomination.


“A lot of this work his way,” he told The Washington Post. “A lot of people in the race yet, but they will fall quickly, because the money is running out. So I think you’re going to the field, winnowing out pretty quickly.”

He added: “And you have. most of the people who are not Bernie Sanders, people, the moderates, and maybe they will work something out to get together and try to find that one person to come up with the number of delegates Maybe this is a way to do it.”

But now, the not-Sanders candidates show no inclination to make way for a consensus pick while still warning about the threat, the Sanders win if the field remains large.

In a memo from the former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg campaign Wednesday in the debate, she warned that Sanders would be almost unstoppable, unless other moderate candidates drop out before Super Tuesday.

To leave “as the race stands today, Sanders is ready to Super Tuesday with a 400-delegate lead over his next closest competitors [Bloomberg]—a probably insurmountable advantage”, the memo said.

The Bloomberg campaign memo stressed that “if Biden, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar stay in the race, although he has no way to gain appreciably delegates on Super Tuesday (and beyond), they are pushing Sanders to a seemingly insurmountable delegate lead to take away by suction, and votes [to Bloomberg].”

Former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg, though, said maybe Bloomberg should “step aside.”


“If he thinks it is an alternative to Bernie Sanders must, I think, we could find a common basis, the. Maybe he should step aside and the person who has the most delegates to move,” Buttigieg told Fox News after the debate on Wednesday.

Reid’s comments come after Sanders made it clear this week in the debate that he thinks that the candidate with the most delegates should win the majority of delegates at the end of the primary calendar, the nomination. The other candidates could not play on the stage agree with this statement-seemingly entertaining the scenario of a contested convention, where “super delegates”, party insiders a role.

“When [Sanders] is the candidate we lose,” a Democrat told Fox News, earlier this month, with two other vulnerable Democrats in Congress to say that a Sanders nomination would almost certainly the member States, Trump, and even have the potential to hurt their down-ballot races for the house and the Senate.

“Elected officials across the country understand it, ballot carnage of the Democratic party is down, when we are choosing the wrong person,” Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, a Biden campaign co-Chairman, emphasized during a conference call with reporters. “If Bernie Sanders were on the ticket, we would lose ourselves in danger of the house, we would not win back the Senate.”

Outside Washington, the former top Democrats also growing concern about Sanders’ momentum, while plotting alternative options.


The former Secretary of state, John Kerry, is in favour of the former Vice-President Joe Biden in December, allegedly was overheard in a hotel restaurant, warning of the very real “possibility of Bernie Sanders’ removal to the Democratic party—down-all,” says an NBC News report that said he floated the possibility, himself.

Kerry fired back in a profanity laced tweet, maintaining that he radiation is not presidential to launch candidacy, and his support remains with Biden, but does not deny it, Sanders.

A November report claimed that the former President Barack Obama once said privately that he would speak, it seemed to be against Sanders when he drew the nose in front. An Obama spokesman, however, reportedly found that the former President has said that he would be behind the Democratic candidate no matter who it is.

This week, Sanders said he was “very confident” that he has the support of Obama.

“I’m not going to tell you that he and I are the best of friends, but we are friends,” Sanders told CNN on Thursday. “I’ve spoken to him on and off for the last many years, sat alone with him in the Oval Office on more than one occasion I have spoken with him on the phone, every now and then.”


“He is an icon, clearly, in the Democratic party, and I have absolute confidence that he will play, is a strong, energetic role—I think that he had said this in the campaign. And, we need him. No question about it. We need him,” he continued. “And if I win, I’m sure he will be there at my side. If someone wins, he will be there at your side.”

The debate of the moment with respect to the delegates was lit, and ahead pointed to a contentious primary contest, and potentially the last, by the Convention.

During Wednesday’s debate of the Democratic candidates were asked whether the person with the most delegates at the end of the primary season, should be the candidate, even if they were short of a majority.

Every democratic presidential candidate said the party rules for the Democratic National Convention, scheduled to take place in July, “should be followed”—except for Sanders.

“Now, the process 500 superdelegates in the second round, so I think that the will of the people should prevail. “Yes,” said Sanders. “The person with the most votes should be the candidate.”

After the first two contests—the Iowa Caucasus and the New Hampshire primary last week—Buttigieg, leads in the delegate count with 22, followed by Sanders with 21, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., with eight, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., with seven and a former Vice-President, Joe Biden, with six. A total of 1,991 delegates required for the democratic nomination are to secure.

Meanwhile, a democratic congressional aide close to the house democratic leadership down concern about Sanders played completely, says Fox News on Friday: “He will not win.”
