After Bernie's decisive 2016 victory in the Granite State primary, I shouldn't be surprised. Still, this latest round of good news made me reread the numbers!
The endorsement is great on its own but YUGE when we consider that King remains quite influential in the trade union movement.
Berner Irena Schulz of South Carolina had a genius brainstorm to help the world's greatest candidate carry the Palmetto State on Leap Day 2020, billboards reminding her neighbors what a Sanders presidency would mean and the importance of voting.
If you would like to learn more, pop over to her GoFundMe page. As of this writing, she already has purchased 8 billboards. As she continues to blow past her original goal, she has concrete plans to secure even more of these persuasive advertising towers.
There's been real progress. For proof, check out this encouraging piece

If you haven't seen the background video released before the Sunrise endorsement, I exhort you to spend a few minutes. It brings the cold statistics of movement politics into sharp focus...
Tack on the People's Action Endorsement and Sanders has had quite a week. Here are the facts...
Charleston, SC Post And Courier report
Aided by voters under 50, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is continuing his recent national surge in South Carolina, where he has supplanted U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for second place.
Sanders gained the most support of any candidate since the last Post and Courier-Change Research poll taken in October. He added 7 percentage points to pass Warren, whose backing was unchanged.
Sanders poll numbers have risen in other early voting states since Thanksgiving, where he has become the leader in New Hampshire and the second choice in Iowa, according to data tallied by Real Clear Politics.
For Berners, looking out from the inside, we knew that the Sanders Surge was born during an early autumn phone call from AOC to a Las Vegas hospital room. However, even as Sanders has climbed and climbed and climbed, my best efforts to convince supporters of other candidates (not necessarily to vote for him but) at least to concede that a Sanders Surge has occurred have been met with cognitive dissonance. No volume facts has made a dent.
I was not surprised by the reaction except for the depths of denial which some feel about Bernie's continued rise despite clogged arteries (which since have been locked open by stents).
On Friday the 13th, the Boston Globe's James Pindell confirmed the Sanders Surge AND MORE! I have crossed linked from the Democratic Primaries forum.
