Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) faced criticism on Thursday from the liberal-leaning blog Daily Kos and the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League for their scheduled event embracing Heath Mello, a pro-life Democrat running for mayor in Omaha, Nebraska.
Ellison, who serves as the Democratic National Committee’s deputy chairman, is filling in last minute for DNC chairman Tom Perez, who will be delivering the keynote speech at the Democratic Party of Georgia’s dinner in Atlanta on Thursday night.
