Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign has announced that it will hold a press conference on Friday afternoon, following its DNC data blockade.
In a press release sent out Friday morning, Bernie 2016 Communications Director Michael Briggs announced that the campaign would hold a press conference at 1pm Friday at its Washington, DC office.
It comes after a Sanders campaign employee was let go after discovering Clinton campaign data on NGP VAN software, used by candidates to manage voter contact and field campaigning. The DNC has since suspended the Sanders campaign’s access to the crucial software.
A petition circulating online following the suspension calling for DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to re-instate Sanders’ campaign’s access to the voter file has so far attracted more than 100,000 signatures.
