Bernie Sanders is privately concerned about how Democratic nominee Joe Biden is running against President Donald Trump.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that Sanders is urging Biden's team to talk about more pocketbook issues and campaign with Democrats including hip progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is quietly worried about the campaign Joe Biden is running and has advised the Democratic nominee to talk more about pocketbook issues and campaign with popular Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Sanders believes Joe Biden (pictured) needs help with Latinos, young Americans and members of the progressive movement, three constituencies that went for the Vermont senator during the 2020 Democratic primaries
Biden's problem with Latinos could hurt him in Florida, Arizona and Nevada, where President Donald Trump (pictured) campaigned Saturday night at the Minden-Tahoe Airport, outside of Reno, Nevada
The Post wrote that Sanders believed Biden would be better served talking about economic populism, instead of simply criticizing the president.
Faiz Shakir, who ran Sanders 2020 presidential campaign, told The Post that Sanders is 'working as hard as he can' to get Biden elected, but admitted that Sanders advised some adjustments.
'Sen. Sanders is confident that Joe Biden is in a very strong position to win this election, but nevertheless feels there are areas the campaign can continue to improve upon,' Faiz said in a statement to The Post. 'He has been in direct contact with the Biden team and has urged them to put more emphasis on how they will raise wages, create millions of good paying jobs, lower the cost of prescription drugs and expand health care coverage.'
The Vermont senator 'also thinks that a stronger outreach to young people, the Latino community and the progressive movement will be a real help to the campaign,' Shakir said.
Latino voters could be critical for Biden in
