I was invited to address the Feel the Bern club in Riverside on the nature of my candidacy and platform. I made the point that Berniecrats are in a particularly powerful position to win back elements of the working class that have drifted to Trump by highlighting the populist policies that would most effectively counter Trump’s dishonest rhetoric. I also argued for civility and the need to speak respectfully to all people, both in our party and in the opposition.
