A Democratic Party organization for younger members under age 35, that seems to oppose Bernie Sanders and can’t find a Latino to run its “caucus” can only claim a handful of elected officials in Hudson as sponsors, and virtually no place else.
Maybe that’s because of a typo-filled press release (it’s available here) that took a shot at Bernie Sanders and progressive supporters and included this passage:
