Former Top Bernie Staffers Form PAC to Support Joe Biden

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) endorsed Joe Biden in a livestream on April 13, and asked for Americans to “come together” to support the former vice president.

And now, some of his former top advisors seem to be acting on that advice — announcing a new political action committee that seeks to help elect Biden.

In an email sent to supporters on Tuesday, they announced the new “Future to Believe In” PAC. The title is a play off Bernie’s 2016 policy book “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe in.”

They said that their mission is to “organize Sanders’ base to turn out for Biden and push for long-term progressive gains.”

The PAC is being led by Jeff Weaver, a powerful figure in Bernie-world, who managed the Vermont senator’s 2016 campaign and was a senior adviser in 2020. Chuck Rocha a top Bernie-aligned political strategist, and Bernie’s fundraising guru Tim Tagaris are also working with “Future to Believe In.”

In their email, they explained “Future to Believe In” will be governed by an experienced team of former staff of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaigns, who over the next six months are committing to organize and turn out the Bernie base with a focus on young voters of all races, very liberal voters, blue collar progressives, and Latino voters in support of Joe Biden. “

Weaver is quoted in the email as saying, “Electing Joe Biden as President of the United States will allow some of those gains to be institutionalized so that our movement can focus on pushing the debate even further in years to come.”

While the PAC is stacked with powerful pedigrees, they won’t have access to Bernie Sanders’ massive email list, according to a report from the New York Times.

Weaver also told the Times that Bernie is “not supportive” of the PAC.

Not all former Sanders aides are getting behind Biden. Sanders’ former spokeswoman, Briahna Joy Gray, has said frequently that she will not support Joe Biden. But Sanders called that approach “irresponsible” and noted that Gray no longer works for him.

  1. Bernie what happened they F–k you again. So did Biden offer you a job to show him were the White House is. Sorry you both shouldn’t be in politics the country is a mess enough. What happened with that school you and your wife was involved in. The Catholic church got 0 and it was there school. The people who wanted the school got 0. But your wife walked away with a million dollars. How did that happen.
    NOW that is capitalism. See you couldn’t even be a good communist . But Bernie your not going to be his vice . In fact he does better at it. Maybe you stand next to him and if he goes creepy you can block his hands. But he will get Pamela HARRIS as vice. Now Trump will have fun. Harris tried blocking the judge by using Ford. It be fun how she protects Biden from that woman that said she was molested in the senate lobby. Bernie hope you don’t join him doing that. But it be fun with the B B CANDIDATES

  2. Is Commie Bernie still itching to get back in the race?

    NO Communists in the White House!

  3. Of course Bernie’s staffers should do that.
    After all they did so well at getting Bernie elected so they must know exactly what to do to get Creepy Joe elected, right?
