With all the drama taking place within the Republican party from their presidential primary to the chaos surrounding the search for a new speaker, we should not ignore that things are moving along within the Democratic party.
While Hillary Clinton has been racking up about 100 endorsements among Democrats in Congress, not a single one of them has endorsed Bernie Sanders. This will change on Friday when Arizona congressperson Raul Grijalva will become the first to do so. No other person elected to national office has done so but several progressive candidates running for office have endorsed him.
This is not insignificant. Grijalva is chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which was co-founded by Sanders, and a long time member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and is an influential voice in the Hispanic community.
