Bernie Sanders supporters: It's not over
MONTPELIER - Supporters of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential bid gathered in front of the Vermont Statehouse on Sunday to voice their continuing support for Sanders on the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.More than 50 supporters from Vermont, New York, New Hampshire — and even one man from France — carried signs, sang, and performed chants on the steps of the Statehouse for more than an hour. "Still Sanders," "Bernie or Bust," "Won't Vote Hillary," and "Time for change, the time is now," some of the signs said.Many who turned out expressed an unwillingness to choose between other Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump in the general election. Some also voiced anger over a recent Democratic National Committee email leak that raise questions about whether party officials were trying to undermine Bernie Sanders' campaign. Many also said that even though Sanders endorsed Clinton earlier this month, Sanders did not officially pull out of the race.
