My husband Phil and I both voted for Bernie at our caucus gathering. His passion and his message was one that touched our hearts. Bernie has profoundly moved America with his revolution. I am grateful for the work he has done. I teared up listening to his speech last night.

Bernie asked us to vote for Hillary and I will. Phil will also vote for Hillary.

We will vote for Hillary for many reasons but the most important reason will be to stop a man who would destroy everything that Bernie worked for during his campaign.

As Bernie said, “If you think you can sit it out, take a minute to think about the Supreme Court justices Donald Trump would appoint — and what that would mean to civil rights and civil liberties.”

God bless Bernie Sanders.
