Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “Our local groups in Illinois worked hard to get out the vote, speaking with friends and neighbors about the importance of sending Chuy Garcia to Congress. Our Revolution will continue to work to support his campaign and are excited for him join the wave of progressive leaders who will fight for Medicare for All, Education for All, immigration reform, and a criminal justice reform in Washington.”
