(Host) Independent Congressman Bernie Sanders is endorsing Democrat Doug Racine in the race for governor. On Monday, Sanders and Racine held a joint press conference at the Plainfield Health Center to promote the expansion of rural health clinics throughout the state.
Sanders says he’s supporting Racine because of the lieutenant governor’s leadership on health care issues:
(Sanders) “Doug is committed to universal health care in the state of Vermont, making sure that every man, woman and child has good quality health care at a price that they can afford. And obviously that’s something that I’ve been working on for many years. So I think Doug is going to be a string advocate for universal health care and I’m very proud to support him in his effort to become governor of this state.”
