Opinion: Leahy urged to support Sanders

Dear Sen. Leahy:
I encourage you to reconsider your vote as a Democratic super delegate, and offer your support to Bernie. If you take the lead on this, I truly hope other super delegates will follow.
I realize you have made a public endorsement of Hillary Clinton, but that was done before Bernie entered the race, and before the people of Vermont overwhelmingly voted for Bernie. Waiting until the convention to decide is really not fair to the 85 percent of Vermont Democrats who want Bernie as our candidate — your constituents would like to see you publicly support him now. Especially in the light of his performance in Michigan, your endorsement at this time could be critical.
Jon Crystal
