Iowa critical to a victory for Bernie Sanders, backers say

IMG_7541On one recent Iowa visit, Bernie Sanders showed he’s the kind of presidential contender who is perfectly comfortable speaking at a podium that’s actually an overturned milk crate on a tabletop.

Sanders, a no-frills man of the people, will be welcome in the presidential race because he’s so sincere about his ideas for making working-class Americans’ lives better, some Iowa Democratic activists said Thursday. It’s possible the Vermont second-term U.S. senator can become a real contender here — and peel away votes from frontrunner Hillary Clinton — if he can explain himself to enough voters, they said.

Instead of dwelling on “Canadian birth certificates and pants suits,” Sanders gets to the heart of problems that bog down the national economy, said Ken Sagar, president of the Iowa AFL-CIO.
