Sanders Statement on DNC Unity Reform Commission

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders issued the following statement on Saturday following the fifth and final meeting of the DNC Unity Reform Commission in Washington D.C.:

“The Democratic Party will not become a vibrant and successful 50 state party until it opens its doors widely to the working people and young people of our country.  I am extremely pleased that the Unity Reform Commission has begun that process, voting nearly unanimously to limit the role of super delegates along with making our caucuses and primaries more democratic. Now it is incumbent on the Democratic Party’s Rules and Bylaws committee and the membership of the DNC to enact these critical reforms as soon as possible.”
