Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday endorsed neuroscientist Dr. Arati Kreibich in her bid to unseat second-term New Jersey Rep. Joshua Gottheimer, a corporate-friendly conservative Democrat who has repeatedly undermined progressive policy goals in Congress while securing favors for the financial industry.
“As a neuroscientist, Arati conducted research on opiate addiction and after working directly with pharmaceutical companies, she gained a clear understanding of the major shortcomings of our for-profit healthcare system,” Sanders said in a statement. “She understands that healthcare is a right for all, and not a privilege for the wealthy few.”
“Arati decided to take on the incumbent Democrat in her district because she knows that this moment requires bold, progressive leadership,” the Vermont senator added. “Now is not the time to think small. If we come together to elect Arati, we will have a member of our movement fighting for our values in Congress.”
Kreibich’s platform includes big-ticket progressive agenda items like a Green New Deal, a $15 federal minimum wage, and Medicare for All. The insurgent candidate’s website also emphasizes priorities such as expanding Social Security, ending cash bail and the death penalty, and implementing universal vote-by-mail.

One of the problems is that these progressives do not get any media coverage from the corrupt MSM.
