D.C. is set to “feel the Bern” once again later this week.

Members of Democracy Spring and other progressive groups are slated to hold a rally for 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at Farragut Square from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, according to a Facebook event page.

Saying they “‘Will! Not! Yield!'” in a Facebook post, organizers vowed to “demand change & reject finance campaign corruption and voter suppression” during the “#MarchForBernieUSA.”

Despite the fact that the Vermont senator endorsed former secretary of state Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee last week, co-organizer Amber Moore still expects at least 350 people to attend and call for Sanders’ nomination.

“Bernie has not dropped out of the race,” Moore said. “He is still the most likely candidate to defeat [presumptive Republican nominee Donald] Trump.”

She added: “He has an opportunity to change the minds of of the super delegates at the [Democratic] convention. Hillary’s trustworthiness has continued to fall.”

  1. “Bernie has not dropped out of the race…”

    Yeah, that endorsement of Hillary was more of practical joke, really.

  2. I hope my Bernie friends look to Gary Johnson for a vote instead. There’s a lot in the libertarian platform Bernie would agree with, and it is steps ahead of Hillary and Trump.
