Seems like both the DNC and Bernie are serious about winning.
USA Today – Sen. Bernie Sanders signed a pledge, required under new Democratic National Committee rules, that declared he was a Democrat and would serve as one if elected president, according to media reports.
“I am a member of the Democratic Party,” the document signed by Sanders reads. “I will run as a Democrat, accept the nomination of my Party, and I will serve as a Democrat if elected.”
The document also spells out that the DNC Chair:
“is authorized to determine whether a presidential candidate has established substantial support for their nomination as the Democratic candidate for the office of the President of the United States, is a bona fide Democrat whose record of public service, accomplishments, public writings and/or public statements affirmatively demonstrate that the candidate is faithful to the interests, welfare and success of the Democratic Party of the United States, and will participate in the convention in good faith.”
