Dear Senator Sanders,

As a native of Georgia from a blue-collar background, I was greatly encouraged by your recent comments about reaching out to white working-class voters. Thank you for speaking the truth in your usual straightforward style.

I agree with you that the Democratic Party has an enormous amount of work to do, if it’s to build an appreciable presence outside of our nation’s urban areas. The first step to accomplishing this goal is to see Trump supporters as they truly are, their strengths as well as their weaknesses, their virtues as well as their vices.

As for me…
