Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has endorsed far-left Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Ianarrone who previously declared herself as “Antifa.”

In a Thursday addendum to his down-ballot endorsement list, Sanders revealed his support of Iannarone

The intro to the list reads in part:

“We need to continue building and strengthening our movement from the ground up by electing more progressives to state and local positions."

"Because the truth is that the victories we accomplish in this election will lay the groundwork for the future of our political revolution.”

Ianarrone responded to the endorsement:

“I’m excited to work on behalf of the 99% to hold big corporations accountable and to fight for health care, a green new deal, and better public safety for all Portlanders and everyone across the country. Thank you.”

Back in July, Ianarrone tweeted:

 “Goddamn tired of watching reporters, medics, legal observers, peaceful protesters, and, yes, vandals getting targeted, arrested & assaulted by Portland Police. F*ck you, Ted Wheeler, seriously.”

She later declared her allegiance to the "Antifa” movement, calling herself an “everyday anti-fascist,” and declaring that, “I am Antifa.”

Earlier this year, Iannarone said she called herself “Antifa” because it’s “good to oppose fascism,” during an interview with Fox News.

Iannarone also has sympathetic views toward communists.

Her campaign manager, admitted last year that he considers himself a communist.

Andy Ngo posted a photo of Iannarone wearing a skirt with images of communist leaders on it.

Iannarone later praised Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for his comment calling the violent group Antifa just "an idea."

"Antifa is not anything more than an idea, that's what vice president Biden explained to us."

"It's people who oppose anti-fascism. And I strongly oppose anti-fascism, and I adopt and implement peaceful responses to that. And that is how I describe my position on this issue."
