Bernie Sanders just endorsed then un-endorsed Cenk Uygur

Sander's has un-endorsed Uygur- but there is evidence he was warned and forged ahead anyways until the backlash fomented.
Oddly, in a race Sander's endorsement might have real meaning, the Senator from Vermont has been silent. Some progressives are disappointed that the Vermont senator has yet to back Texas Democrat Jessica Cisneros.
The Vermont senator’s absence is particularly glaring because of the breadth of support Cisneros already enjoys. The Laredo native, who at 26 would be the youngest-ever woman elected to Congress, is backed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and a broad array of progressive organizations and labor unions that typically stick with incumbents. The latter group of endorsers includes EMILY’s List, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, a branch of the Communication Workers of America, MoveOn Action, and the League of Conservation Voters.
As of today, Senator Sanders has not endorsed Jessica Cisneros.
This post was deleted for the following reason: Sorry, but US primary news will go a lot better here if we avoid posts that are basically attacks on a particular Dem candidate because, as we learned in 2016, that turns into a never-ending cycle of pain and anger. Unless it's actually big, *major* news, let's skip the "Candidate makes misstep" sort of thing. Thanks! -- taz
