Zephyr Teachout Suddenly Silent On Socialist’s Endorsement

Yesterday, Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders endorsed Zephyr Teachout, a candidate in New York’s 19th Congressional District, months after she endorsed his campaign. But the Times Herald-Record reported that Teachout has remained “fairly silent” about Sanders’ endorsement. Teachout did not attend Sanders’ rally at Marist College in the district earlier this week, and “her campaign declined to comment on it yesterday when reached by a reporter.”

It appears that Teachout must be having second thoughts about the support she has received from a socialist and is now following the failed Sean Eldridge strategy of hiding from reporters.
