"As Republicans and Democrats shift their focus from national conventions to national campaigns, a new political party is emerging. The Movement for a People’s Party plans to hold its own inaugural convention this weekend.
The movement is made up of a multitude of disenfranchised Democrats like Carole Ehrle.
"Most of us came out of the Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign," she said. "We saw how he was cheated during that election, and many of us were distraught, didn’t have a place to go."
So they spent the last three years building their own organization. Their plan is become a viable third-party alternative for voters.
"The Democratic Party of today does not represent the vast majority of people," Ehrle said. "It doesn’t answer to the needs of people. It is a corporate-owned party."
