Symone Sanders, Former Bernie Spox, Has Joined Team Biden

Symone Sanders, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) press secretary in 2016, has signed on to work on former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign.

According to the Daily Beast, Sanders has recently come down on the former vice president for his jokes about touching women, but has said he’d be “formidable” in the election.

Sanders, 29, will also add diversity and youth to Biden’s team. She’s currently a political commentator for CNN.

The former vice president announced his candidacy officially Thursday morning with a campaign video.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
