Event Description:

Jeff Weaver -- 2016 National Presidential Campaign Manager for Bernie Saunders

Jeff Weaver, who served as the Campaign Manager for the Bernie Sanders 2016 Presidential Campaign, engineered one of the most remarkable set of political strategies in several decades.  This innovative campaign challenged the dominant Democratic establishment and advanced a series of progressive issues and ideals that attracted new voters in unprecedented strength. 

 

He discusses in his new book, How Bernie Won: Inside the Revolution That's Taking Back Our Country -- and Where We Go From Here, the first-hand experience of developing an alternate political organization focused on “policies and not personalities,” not to direct a negative campaign or remain beholden to large contributors – but instead to gather modest supporter funds   that averaged $27. 

 

Weaver will share the dynamics of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign that resulted in the stunning upset victory in the New Hampshire Democratic Presidential Primary election and victories in 22 other states with significant voter gains.  In the process Bernie Sanders went from little name recognition when he entered the presidential race to being one of the most respected and well-known political leaders in America. 

 

He believes that Bernie’s 2016 campaign changed the political debate in America.  

 

Issues like Medicare for all, free tuition at public colleges and raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour have become mainstream conversation in the 2018 mid-term election, possibly extending to the presidential race in 2020.  

 

Weaver served as Bernie's chief of staff in both the US House and Senate.  A Vermont native, he is a graduate of Vermont University and Georgetown University Law Center.
