Pennsylvania counties where Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton in 2016 are full of warning signs for him now
DUNCANNON, Pa. — Michael Wendt liked what he saw in Bernie Sanders in 2016. An electrician, Wendt thought that Sanders, more than Hillary Clinton, spoke to him and his neighbors in this mostly Republican town 20 miles from Harrisburg. He liked Sanders’ ideas for the middle class — and still does.
But this time around, Wendt is not even considering Sanders. A more moderate voter, most concerned with defeating Donald Trump, he’s worried about what “the S word” will mean for Sanders in places like rural Pennsylvania.
