Spiritual Guru and Former 2020 Candidate Makes Endorsement Announcement After Nevada

The 2020 Democratic primary election would go down in history as one of our nation’s strangest political contests of all time.

Thanks to the boisterous nature of President Trump, there were no less than two dozen Democrats who threw their hat into the ring, creating a nightmare scenario for the party itself.  It seemed as though everyone and their brother were running for President, including a number of candidates from outside of the normal political circles.

Of these fringe also-rans, only one could be crowned the most out of place:  Marianne Williamson, who rose to prominence as a spiritual guru and new age author before trying her hand at politics.

Predictably, Williamson wasn’t long for this world, and has been officially out of the race for several months now.

Over the weekend, Mrs. Williamson made her 2020 pick.

Former Democratic hopeful Marianne Williamson made a surprise appearance at Sen. Bernie Sanders’ rally Sunday in Austin, Texas, to announce her endorsement of the Democratic front-runner.

“Bernie Sanders has taken a stand, and Bernie Sanders has been taking a stand for a very long time. He has been consistent, he has been convicted, he has been committed. And now it’s time, I’m here and you’re here, because it’s time for us to take a stand with Bernie,” Williamson told the crowd in Austin.

Williamson dropped out of the Democratic race on January 10. She had endorsed Sanders in his first presidential run in May 2015.

On Sunday, she argued that Sanders is proving the Democratic establishment wrong.

“We’re being told oh, it can’t happen. He can’t beat (President Donald) Trump. Bernie can’t beat Trump, it can’t happen,” Williamson said. “I’ll tell you what’s already happened to those who say it cannot happen. You just tell them this. It already happened. He won Iowa. It already happened, he won New Hampshire. It already happened, he won Nevada,” Williamson added, pointing to Sanders’ growing momentum.

Sanders has solidified his spot at the top of the 2020 class with decisive wins in New Hampshire’s primary, a strong showing in the somewhat-tainted results from Iowa, and a complete blowout in Nevada.
