The Election Cycle Heats Up

As the 2020 Presidential Election looms, the Democrats are narrowing the race for their candidate, with the vote essentially coming down to two candidates: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. People are still split (although Biden is looking like the front runner at this point), and former contenders are giving their support to who they think has the best chance at victory.

Senator Cory Booker gave his endorsement to Biden, writing on Instagram:

"The answer to hatred & division is to reignite our spirit of common purpose. @joebiden won't only win - he'll show there's more that unites us than divides us. He'll restore honor to the Oval Office and tackle our most pressing challenges. That's why I'm proud to endorse Joe."

Getting The Word Out For Bernie

While Booker may be supporting Biden, his girlfriend, actress Rosario Dawson endorsed Bernie Sanders. She wrote a lengthy post on Instagram:

"I got to vote for Bernie again and I did. Whoever it is that you’re supporting I hope that you are doing it consciously, with heart and with a ballot. Talking about things helps but actions speak louder than words. To all of you on the sidelines, we need you. Please register and vote. Make this election one for the history books."

Returning To Decency

She didn't mention Booker's endorsement, instead focusing on appealing to her followers' better instincts and calling for a return to decency.

"Turn out needs to be historic to drive home the message that we stand for something bigger and better than what we have now. That we truly stand for each other. Earthizen Humanity First!

No more bullying. No more mocking. No more trolling. We can be better than that so why not be? Let our decency, honesty and humanity ring loud and true. It’s much more constructive, believe me. March to the polls and let’s make sure folks are registered and able to vote by any means necessary."

The Importance Of Voting

Ultimately, she just wants people to get out and vote. Just because she's Booker's girlfriend doesn't mean she has to vote the same way he does, and she thinks everyone deserves that choice. Use it!

"PS: Upset about our primary/electoral system? Elections and much else (equity much?) aren’t fair. Voter suppression efforts like redistricting, gerrymandering and voter purging (among many other issues) have long since made that clear. That’s why voting is only one of many ways we can transform our system for the better (fill out your census!). So please stay in the game, no matter what, and continue the fight our ancestors fought with fewer means and resources, not just so that we could bicker on social media, but so that we could continue to improve conditions for each other and make the path that much better, healthier and clearer for the generations to come. Blessings to you all. #NotMeUs"
