RPI Statement on Bernie Sanders’ Iowa Visit

DES MOINES — If you are covering Bernie Sanders’ Iowa campaign stops, please consider the following statement from Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann:

“As violence unfolds in the streets of Venezuela, Bernie Sanders has remained eerily silent. We already know Sanders wants to nationalize all major industries, and he has called breadlines ‘a good thing.’ But as Maduro runs down his own people in the streets, Iowans are left wondering why Sanders has yet to condemn the Venezuelan dictator and his abhorrent actions.”
