Cenk Uygur interviews Bernie Sanders' chief of staff and 2016 campaign manager Jeff Weaver. Buy 'How Bernie Won: Inside the Revolution That's Taking Back Our Country-and Where We Go from Here' http://a.co/9cKKSSv About the book:When Jeff Weaver hopped in a car with Bernie Sanders in the summer of 1986, he had no idea the Vermont backroads would lead them all the way to the 2016 presidential campaign. In HOW BERNIE WON: Inside the Revolution That's Taking Back Our Country—and Where We Go from Here, Weaver, the brilliant manager of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, shows how Sanders built a movement that would sweep America, inspire millions, and take on the entire establishment, changing modern American politics for good. HOW BERNIE WON shows how Bernie and his team overcame significant challenges: a media that thrived on negative campaigns; a party that thrived on personalities; and a political system that thrived on big money. Weaver explains how Bernie beat them all and, in doing so, went from having little national name recognition when he entered to the race to being one of the most respected and well-known people in the world by its end. In HOW BERNIE WON, Weaver argues Bernie won the race. He moved the discussion from the concerns of the 1% to those of the 99%, he forced the Democrats to remember their populist roots, and he showed that an outsider with real ideas and ways to get them done was more popular than someone propped up by backroom political sugar daddies.From holding bags of “Bernie buttons” and picket-stick signs, to managing thousands of campaign workers, to looking ahead to 2020, Weaver chronicles the birth of a revolution that didn’t end in November 2016. It’s only just begun.JEFF WEAVER began working for Bernie Sanders in 1986. He was his campaign manager for the 2016 presidential election, as well as president of Our Revolution, a nonprofit founded by Sanders until June 2017. He graduated from the University of Vermont and Georgetown University Law School. He lives in Falls Church, Virginia.Like this interview? Enough that you want to throw a little Bitcoin our way?
