"I clearly believe that everyone deserves support, love and the freedom to live their own lives," said Justin Vernon in a statement. “There are promises in our constitutional language that are being replaced by money and greed in this country. I think Senator Sanders is the only one who has the family tree, the experience, the courage and the immortal spirit to remove these obstacles to freedom. "
In other recent Sanders news, his campaign released a video with enthusiastic supporter Killer Mike. Look for the clip titled "I'm with the Revolutionary" below.
