Sanders wins progressive support

Examiner - In another victory for Sen. Bernie Sanders, who on Thursday picked up the endorsement of the huge Communications Workers of America union, won the backing of the progressive group Democracy for America. More than 87 percent of the group voted over nine days to endorse the Vermont senator over Hillary Clinton and Martin O'Malley. Clinton won 10 percent, O'Malley, the former Maryland governor, 1 percent.

 "It is no secret that the founder of DFA — my friend and fellow Vermonter former Gov. Howard Dean — has chosen not to support my candidacy. Yet the leadership of DFA allowed a fair and free vote to take place which we won," Sanders said in a statement. "That's pretty impressive."
