July 29, 2022


“The billionaire class is saying, ‘We own this country, and we will not tolerate dissent. Work for us or get out.’ Senator Bernie Sanders said to the crowd. “Andy Levin has chosen not to work for them, and based on his work deserves to be re-elected. We must tell them they can’t buy our democracy.”


PONTIAC, MI – With billionaire-funded Super PACs set on defeating Michigan’s progressive champions, Senator Bernie Sanders traveled to Michigan last night to host a Get Out the Vote Rally with hundreds of attendees in support of Congressman Andy Levin and Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib ahead of the August 2 primary.

“I want to thank my friend Andy for his partnership at home as well in Washington, DC. Andy is a true fighter for the people.” said Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. “I’ve seen him—he is a labor champion, a climate champion, and a justice champion. Again, he is the only candidate who is unapologetically supporting Medicare for All. It is so crucial that we both head back to Congress to speak truth, to finish the work that we started, and send a clear message to the billionaires: we aren’t going anywhere.”


“The fundamental question right here, standing in Pontiac: Are we going to let these Republican billionaires decide who the next congressperson is from the new Eleventh District?” Congressman Andy Levin asked the crowd. “Let’s win with people power! Let’s get out there and crush the billionaires and win!”


“The billionaire class is saying, ‘We own this country and we will not tolerate dissent. Work for us or get out,’” Senator Bernie Sanders said. “Andy Levin has chosen not to work for them, and based on his work deserves to be re-elected. We must tell them they can’t buy our democracy.”


Internal polling shows the race too close to call. The Levin campaign has seen a groundswell of grassroots support and donations in the final days in response to the outside money flooding Michigan’s 11th District.
