Florida Rep. Alan Grayson, a Democrat known for bucking the Democratic establishment, announced his endorsement of Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders, the Democratic socialist challenging Hillary Clinton for the party’s presidential nomination.
Like Sanders, Grayson is in an uphill fight against his party’s leaders, challenging Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy for the party’s nomination for Senate in the Sunshine State.
“Bernie Sanders and I share a goal of building a grassroots movement of people who want to take back our country from the billionaires and the multinational corporations,” Grayson said in a statement. “We want to make elections into something different: Not the lesser of two evils, but the greater good.”
