That’s a caucus win, in several ways

The caucus results are in, finally.

Our endorsed candidate Bernie Sanders takes victory in Iowa! 

It’s clear that Sen. Sanders won both rounds of popular votes in the caucuses. The likely result is that Bernie and Mayor Buttigieg will get the same number of delegates to the DNC. (The state delegate equivalent metric being used to tout a paper-thin lead over Sanders is the least important metric in the Iowa caucuses.) 

Take a minute to celebrate the power of organized people and bold ideas, over the power of big money!

We’re energized by the other numbers that keep rolling in: 

And, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s third place showing, it’s clear our bold ideas are winning. And, that a multi-generational, multi-racial, working class movement is how we win against Trump and big money.

I’m proud of our work together this caucus season.

We flipped the script on how elections can and should work. We made elections about us – the voters – not the candidates. 

We showed the world what happens when we refuse to let certain politicians and greedy corporations turn us against each other.

We used this “all eyes on Iowa” moment to do politics differently – to lift up our issues and pull more people into our long-haul work of building a people’s movement to win a future that works for everyone in Iowa, our country, and our planet.
