KANSAS CITY PROGRESSIVE DEBATE NIGHT: OUR REVOLUTION BERNIE SUPPORTERS DISRUPT LOCAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY BIZ AS USUAL!!!
One again local grassroots supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders are putting the mainstream Democratic Party elite in Kansas City on edge.
Example . . .
TONIGHT KANSAS CITY BERNIE SUPPORTERS CROWD THE NORTHLAND WITH THE BIGGEST DEBATE WATCH PARTY IN THE METRO!!!
Don't write off the influence of Our Revolution Kansas City . . . They led the local "Blue Wave" of 2018 and have loyal allies on the KCMO Council. Right now their mini-cable-tv-news-watch rally is the most enthusiastic gathering we've seen in the metro and they're planning more Democratic Party demonstrations as 2020 quickly approaches.
Meanwhile, only a small cadre of local Democratic ladies among the Greater Kansas City Women's Political Caucus are standing up for Sen. Liz Warren.
A handful of hopeful progressives mistakenly think Mayor Pete Buttigieg has a shot.
Latinos in the know realize Former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro is really running for Vice President.
Local urban leaders are torn betwixt supporting Senator Cory Booker vs. Senator Kamala Davis.
And only the most dedicated Kansas City union leaders back former Veep Joe Biden . . . Albeit cautiously.
Accordingly . . .
