“Few would deny that over the course of the past five years our movement has won the ideological struggle,” Sanders said in a live stream video.

“It was not long ago that people considered these ideas radical and fringe,” the progressive senator added. “Today they are mainstream ideas, and many of them are already being implemented in cities and states across the country. That is what we have accomplished together.”
