[AMA] Hi Reddit, this is RI state rep Aaron Regunberg. I’m running for Lt. Governor against a Democratic incumbent who’s taken hundreds of thousands from Republican mega donors. I was the first and pretty much only elected official in the state to endorse Bernie ;) AMA!

Hi Reddit, This is RI state rep Aaron Regunberg. AMA!

I first got involved in politics organizing in our public schools. I founded an organization called the Providence Student Union to support the voices of young people. Through PSU, students won some serious change including free bus passes, healthier school lunches, ethnic studies classes and less drill-kill high-stakes testing.

It was organizing with these students that taught me that big change is possible when voices from the community actually have a say in the political decisions that impact them. It inspired me to run for state representative at 24.

In the State House, I built a Rhode Island Progressive Caucus and led successful fight to win the first raise in the tipped minimum wage in 20 years, pass online voter registration, expand wind and solar energy, and guarantee paid sick days for 100,000 workers who never before had that security. Each year that I’ve been elected I’ve also introduced legislation to create a single payer universal healthcare system, carbon pricing, a $ 15 minimum wage, an assault weapons ban, and more.

I’m running for Lt. Governor to take our fight for progressive change to the next level. So! I’m really looking forward to talking more about our campaign, our platform, RI politics – as messy as they can often be – or anything else. AMA!

What can we say against all of the folks convinced “Bernie Bros” are the reason for recent Supreme Court drama?

It's literally all I've seen all over my facebook, twitter, parts of reddit and especially on the MSM. "He stole votes from Hillary!!"

It's ludicrous, I know you all know it's ludicrous but no matter what I say they just don't seem to listen. I want to say that I will personally donate $ 50 to any candidate of their choosing if they can prove or cite their hatred of 3rd party candidates (which Bernie wasn't even one) but I'm more than certain it's a massive fallacy.

Please help me out here, I need some sources.

How well do you guys think Bernie would hypothetically do in the 2020 primary against Biden?

While I know we still have 2018 ahead of us, 2020 is right around the corner after that, how well do you guys think Bernie would be able to do against Biden if he were to run? While I know he'd be able to sweep up the rest of them, Biden is the one that worries me because he has more support and name recognition than sanders, and would be able to get the minority votes due to him being tied to the Obama administration. I don't know, Biden looks like he's getting ready for something, and if I had to guess itd be 2020. But whatever, I don't know, Maybe Bernie doesn't even run, but I just hope a progressive like warren or gabbard takes the primary, if we get another neoliberal like Biden, or God forbid Cory booker or Kamala Harris, I don't know how this country is ever gonna get itself out of the mess it's in.
