(RightWing.org) – As former Vice President Joe Biden has all but officially won the DNC presidential nomination, more and more liberals are flocking behind him. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) suspended his campaign and endorsed Biden to the dismay of many Sanders supporters. Although many Bernie fans are upset, not all of his campaign aides were on board with a political revolution.
One, Jeff Weaver, has branched off to form a super PAC in Biden’s favor. It’s called the “Future To Believe In” PAC, which is a homage to Bernie’s 2016 campaign slogan. Senator Sanders doesn’t support this decision and his rabid fan base is bearing its teeth at Weaver’s move.
UPDATE: Just spoke to Jeff Weaver.
He told me Bernie Sanders "is not supportive of this super PAC.”
Weaver added, "He certainly would prefer we had not done it through a super PAC" but "each of us has to make our own decision about how to move forward.” https://t.co/XhDUDLuBGj

Weaver splintering from Sanders’ campaign to support the establishment Democrat candidate is a mirror of 2016 when he did the same for Hillary Clinton. This move is only increasing the already deep divide between moderate Democrats and progressives. As these kinds of events play out through the remainder of 2020, President Donald Trump’s ability to secure another four years in the Oval Office becomes more assured. At this rate, America will continue to be great even as we deal with and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
