NPC Statement of Bernie Sanders' New Hampshire Primary Victory

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) congratulates Bernie Sanders on his historic and decisive victory in New Hampshire, becoming the first ever  democratic socialist to win a major party statewide presidential primary. This victory, together with the virtual tie in Iowa, his amazing fundraising numbers, and polls that put him within striking distance of first place nationally, demonstrates that the message of democratic socialism appeals to more people in the US than ever, especially among young people, working class voters, and women. We believe that as Sanders and his program get more exposure among voters of color, his base of support will expand even further.

This weekend, DSA's youth section, the Young Democratic Socialists, will be hosting students and young people from across the United States in Brooklyn at our "Generation Left: Millennials Building the Next Socialist Movement" conference (registration here). In the next few months, DSA will be cosponsoring the "Political Revolution Tour," a series of events in cities around the country to discuss next steps to build the democratic socialist movement beyond the presidential election-- stay tuned for dates and locations!
