After this weekend, Bernie Sanders just might be the primary candidate to beat.
He cleaned up in the Nevada caucus, winning far more delegates than his closest rival.
That might be good news for Bernie bros, but not for the rest of the party.
We’ve talked about how establishment Democrats are worried about Bernie getting the nomination.
Things aren’t looking very good. Democrat leader Jim Clyburn is getting pretty nervous.
In fact, he’s talking about losing more than just the White House. He thinks the Democrats might lose a lot more.
“A lot of people think so,” Rep. Jim Clyburn tells @GStephanopoulos when asked if Sanders being the nominee could put the House majority in danger.

“A lot of people think so,” Rep. Jim Clyburn tells @Gstephanopoulos when asked if Sanders being the nominee could put the House majority in danger.
“I think that that would be a real burden for us in these states,” he says, pointing to “socialist” label. http://abcn.ws/2T4z8As
Wow. Jim Clyburn admits to ABC that if Sanders gets the nomination, it could risk the Democrat’s House majority.
We already know their majority is in jeopardy. Americans are not pleased with Nancy Pelosi’s performance as Speaker of the House.
She spent last year trying to impeach Trump—then there was the speech tearing thing.
On top of that, a record number of Republican candidates have filed for House seats. They are gunning for many spots currently held by Democrats.
Clyburn fears that if Bernie becomes essentially “the face” of the Democrats, millions of Americans will be turned off.
They won’t want Sanders’ brand of socialism. And with that, the rest of the party.
We could be looking at a significant change in government, come November.
Not only will Congress embrace Trump’s agenda, but we also won’t have to worry about any more bogus impeachments against him.
SHARE if you want Republicans to retake the House!
