Bernie Sanders at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Iowa

On the Road: Jefferson-Jackson Dinner

I am running for President of the United States because America needs a political revolution. And that's what this campaign is about: standing up and taking back our government from a handful of billionaires.

This past weekend Bernie attended the Iowa Democratic Party's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Des Moines. Before the event, Bernie held a rally for supporters. It was packed with people, and there was so much excitement and enthusiasm.

That energy carried over into the main event where Bernie talked about his history of fighting for progressive values and his vision for the future of our country when he’s elected President of the United States.
