Former Bernie Chairwoman Says If Dems want to defeat Trump they need “some excitement”

Nina Turner, the former co-chairwoman of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) presidential campaign, on Thursday said Democrats will need to gin up more excitement with the party’s base if they hope to unseat President Trump in November.

“We need some excitement,” she said in an appearance on Hill.TV’s “Rising.”

“To get people to vote, I have a news flash, it doesn’t happen in the head first, it happens in the heart. And you must excite people. And Trump as bad as he is, as rotten as he is, as wrong as he is, he does bring a certain type of excitement.”

Turner also argues it’s important to have a candidate that supports progressive policies for systematic change, rather than Democrat’s tokenism to choose a VP of color.
