SANDERS ACCOMPLISHMENT.  Yahoo.  “He lost. But the presidential bid of Democrat Bernie Sanders was historic in at least one way: He appears to have raised more money for his campaign than any other candidate, including fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, one of the most adept fundraisers in politics.”

CA:  ALLEGED COORDINATION.  HTS.  “The allegation accuses Acosta’s campaign with illegal communications between Acosta’s campaign and Grow Elect, ‘a political action committee founded in late 2011 that is dedicated to recruiting, training, advising, and funding qualified Latino Republican candidates for state and local offices in California.'”
