Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle: Time For Sanders Supporters To Get Behind Clinton

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says it’s time for Bernie Sanders supporters to get behind Hillary Clinton. She’s one of the most powerful politicians in the Cook County Democratic Party and she’s a delegate for Hillary Clinton.

Preckwinkle says the Democratic Party needs to unify the Sanders and Clinton supporters - but also that Sanders lost the primary and that it’s not realistic that the party would adopt Sanders’s policies as part of the party’s platform.
