6/15-BERNIE SANDERS DELEGATE MARTHA MEDRANO STAYS ONLY ONE LESSON AHEAD OF US STUDENTS AS SHE LEARNS ABOUT DELEGATES BY BEING ONE FOR THE FIRST TIME!
What is a “delegate”? Oh, sure, we know delegates go to conventions to determine by their votes who the partys’ candidates will be but what is life like for a delegate, particularly in an election year as contested and convoluted as this one. How do you get to be a delegate? Are they paid? What kind of pressure are they under from lobbyists to vote for candidates the lobbyists prefer? Are they ever bribed? Threatened? MARTHA MEDRANO is a Bernie Sanders delegate from California who won out over thirty other women and she visits with Sara and Barry this evening.
