Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is gearing up to fight back hard against his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
“Yesterday, one of Hillary Clinton’s most prominent Super PACs attacked our campaign pretty viciously,” Sanders wrote in an email Tuesday to supporters.
Sanders was referring to the pro-Clinton super PAC Correct the Record, run by Clinton supporter David Brock, which circulated an email comparing Sanders to controversial left-wing British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who called Osama bin Laden’s death a “tragedy,” among other puzzling statements.
“They suggested I’d be friendly with Middle East terrorist organizations, and even tried to link me to a dead communist dictator,” Sanders wrote.
“It was the kind of onslaught I expected to see from the Koch Brothers or Sheldon Adelson, and it’s the second time a billionaire Super PAC has tried to stop the momentum of the political revolution we’re building together,” Sanders added.
Sanders is quickly gaining on Clinton in the polls. Sanders only trails Clinton 47 percent to 27 percent nationally, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll.
