“I believe Bernie Sanders is following Rev. Jesse Jackson 1984 and 1988 campaign model. That’s why he’s not dropping out.” – Roland Martin
In this edition of The Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast, Martin explains why Sen. Bernie Sanders is not dropping out of the 2016 presidential race and how Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr.’s historic presidential run in 1984 and 1988 led to changes in how Democratic presidential delegates are counted.
Some of y’all can hate on Rev. Jesse Jackson if you want, but his presidential runs in 1984 and 1988 were not meaningless. They changed the DNC. – Roland Martin
Martin also explained Sanders can use the leverage of his primary wins and votes to gain concessions from the Democratic National Committee if he doesn’t win the party’s nomination.
Listen to portions of a Bernie Sanders’ rally in Wisconsin from Saturday night, plus Martin takes your calls on the topic of the day and asks if presidential candidates should accept campaign contributions from Wall Street and major corporations.
