Former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson announced her endorsement of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2020 election Sunday.
Williamson, a self-help author, said Sanders is leading the political revolution that has come as a result of blowback toward “capitalism without conscience” and “corporate elites” in a statement. She made an unexpected stop at Sanders’s rally in Austin, Texas, to speak about her support. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Breezes To Victory Over Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg In Nevada Caucuses)
