Jeff Merkley becomes first sitting Senator to endorse Bernie Sanders

Being a sitting Senator, that means he’s also one of the vaunted Super Delegates. While praising Hillary Clinton for her work supporting equality, Senator Merkley notes that, “We need urgency. We need big ideas. We need to rethink the status quo.”

Merkley is a junior Senator from Oregon who came to the Senate in 2008 on the coattails of the highly-popular President Barack Obama.
