Update 5:00pm EDT:
In an email to supporters on Monday, Bernie Sanders highlighted four hotly-contested races that he says will likely determine the Senate majority: Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Ohio and Nevada.
“The Koch brothers know this. That is why they are spending tens of millions of dollars to defeat these four candidates for Senate,” Sanders wrote. “And that’s why I’m asking you to support them: Katie McGinty in Pennsylvania, Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, Ted Strickland in Ohio, and Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada.”
“I want to be clear,” he continues. “It is very important that our movement holds public officials accountable. The Democratic Party passed an extremely progressive agenda at the convention. Our job is to make sure that platform is implemented. That will not happen without Democratic control of the Senate.”
Bernie Sanders’ highly-coveted email list of supporters—whose small donations smashed records and fueled his insurgent campaign for president—will not be handed over to the Democratic Party, campaign insiders say.
However, according to Roll Call, which cited an unnamed source who was “briefed on his plans,” the progressive senator from Vermont will be utilizing that list and his wide popularity to raise funds and garner support for Senate hopefuls with an eye towards winning a Democratic majority come November.
