A leading liberal representative, Jayapal, supports Sanders from a president

In a telephone interview with The Washington Post on Sunday, Jayapal (D-Wash.) Said that she decided to endorse Sanders because "it is clear about policy prescriptions that go to the heart of what people need to work." " She reveals her endorsement Monday in Iowa.

Jayapal also informed An Post that she will be nominated as chair of national health policy for the Sanders campaign, as well as the Washington State chair.

The endorsement. t Sanders (I-Vt.) Is a significant blow and is a blow to Warren (D-Mass.), Who has created friendship with Jayapal in recent years. and she is seeking support from women in her call to voters before the first nomination competition in Iowa on February 3.

Supports Jayapal, who is an Indian Indian and who co-chairs the Progressive Congressional Caucus, shows increased strength of Sanders on the left and its diversified alliance. Having built the following in 2016 that people were too male and too white, Sanders have received endorsements this time from the obstacle Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn .) And Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

Sanders campaign officials are hoping to deploy Ocasio-Cortez in Iowa in the final part of the race there. A busy schedule of events they have taken in the early states with surrogates sometimes as Sanders usually performs his duties in the Senate as a juror in trial of Trump behavior.

Jayapal's support comes a day after Sanders received an endorsement from Rep Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), Another chairman of the Progressive Caucus Congressional. The Progressive Progressive is the largest coalition of the left-handed members of Congress. It includes many members of the House and one senator: Sanders.

Senator Vermont spent the weekend at a campaign in New Hampshire, where he tried to appeal to women voting and moving over his conflict with Warren. She said in a debate last Tuesday that Sanders, in a private conversation in late 2018, agreed with the assurance that a woman could beat Trump. Sanders voluntarily denied that.

On a Saturday afternoon in Portsmouth, Sanders spoke at the marching of women, encouraging men to stand with women on issues that affected them. “We are together,” he said. At the town hall in Exeter, he thanked women for “helping to lead the opposition to Trump at all levels.” T

When a voter in Exeter calls on his strategy as the Democratic field narrower and becomes worse, Sanders said that he would focus on “issues related to American working families,” and said to the news media, he said “ Conflict often wants and exaggerates. ”

But many Sanders supporters have taken the opportunity to battle with Warren, exchanging controversial social media exchanges. Almost a week after their feet first fell, the conflict was still raw for both candidates' supporters.

“Until recently, Elizabeth Warren was my second choice, but she's no longer,” said Forrest Rapier, a 30-year-old community organizer who thought Warren could “stop Rapier saying” , who attended a Sanders rally in Manchester, that he wrote Sanders' name on his ballot in the general election unless he was the Democratic nominee.

As Sanders spoke at the women's march in Portsmouth, Susan Harden, a 56-year-old primary school teacher from Pelham, N.H., was expecting a sign urging voters to choose a woman as a nominee against Trump.

“I can see Elizabeth's frustration,” she said in an interview, “being called out at the national debate stage.” Harden said, “I think Elizabeth Warren should have a lot of support for the future.”

On Saturday, Warren won the endorsement of Janet Petersen, the Democratic leader in the Iowa state Senate. The support could be boosted before the first February of Iowa.

The disagreement between Sanders and Warren, who held a debate on Tuesday, was followed by a warmer confrontation, captured by CNN microphones. During a brief exchange, Warren accused Sanders of calling her a liar call and he answered the same allegation against him.

In an interview with The Washington Post last summer, Jayapal spoke positively about Warren and Sanders, recalling wonderful memories of her first meeting with both candidates. She remembered the Sanders meeting in Seattle when it fell in 2015, during its first president run. Both of them spoke at a rally to expand Medicare and Social Security, she said.

“I remember him coming out of the stage and he gave me a big hug and he said, They said everything I had to say!” ”Jayapal said. She said Sanders asked her to introduce her evening rally in Seattle. She replied that she would, but he told his team that she still didn't support him because she wanted to learn more about her race, gun and gender record.

The team set up a prompt meeting, said it was a positive conversation.

“It all happened in one day,” recalled Jayapal.

She also spoke enthusiastically to Warren, referring to legislation they worked together and exchanging numerous text messages.

When she ran for the 2016 cycle, Sanders supported Jayapal, which resulted in a huge increase in fundraising, which she said last year.

“A few days later, I was sitting in the campaign office, and suddenly I began to listen to all of them – wedge, wedge, wedge – all these sounds,” said Jayapal. “It happened that the staff had the sound every time a contribution was made. And the computers said they were crazy. ”She said she raised $ 150,000 in 24 hours.
