Listen: Bernie Sanders’ Post-Endorsement Conference Call With 1,900 Delegates
Shortly after Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidency on Tuesday, the senator held a conference call with his 1,900 delegates to discuss the future of their political revolution.
“In the coming weeks,” Sanders said during the call, “I will be announcing the creation of the successor organization to our presidential campaign, to advance the struggle that we have been a part of these past 15 months.”
When asked if he intends “to remain as a figurehead leader for the progressive movement of the future, continuing to work to advocate and engage,” Sanders replied, “Absolutely, I will.”
On Thursday, The Associated Press reported that Sanders has written a book about his campaign and the future of the movement that blossomed because of it. “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In” will be published by Thomas Dunne Books on Nov. 15, one week after the general election.
