NEWS: Sanders Statement on DNC Rules Committee 

BURLINGTON, Vt. – Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday issued the following statement after the Democratic Party’s Rules Committee voted unanimously to maintain reforms made after 2016 to the presidential nominating process:

“The rules passed today, which keep in place the important changes we pushed to make four years ago, ensure that our party’s presidential nominee is selected by rank-and-file Democrats – not party elites. I want to thank the Biden campaign, the delegates and the members of the committee who forged this agreement. What it says, very simply, is that the will of the people must come first.”
