Pramila Jayapal was endorsed by Sanders in April and won the election by 16 points.
“When you think of the political revolution I want you to think about Pramila,” Sanders said.
Pramila just proved that you can run a strong progressive campaign funded by small dollar donors and win big. The people powered movement that propelled the progressive campaign to victory to states around the country is already changing how campaigns are run up and down the ticket.
The Sanders campaign made 140,314 phone calls, knocked on doors and raised $226,000 in funds for Jayapal’s campaign.
