Bernie Sanders.” To a beaming Sanders he continued, “I’ve never said you were my favorite senator on this program before, or when I was doing the 6 o’clock, but you are and I want to announce that tonight. You are my favorite senator because you stand up to what is wrong with this country, and you always have a solution on what we need to do to make things better for the middle class and I respect that.”
