Never Trump Republican frets that Bernie Sanders will win Democratic nomination

" Never Trump" political commentator Sarah Longwell urged Democrats on Saturday to consolidate the Democratic presidential primary field to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., from becoming the party's nominee.

Longwell wants Democrats to heed the lessons of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, saying that a crowded field deep into primary season is one of the most substantial reasons why the Republican Party ended with a Trump candidacy. She warned that if Sanders does become the Democratic nominee, President Trump will easily defeat him in 2020.

"I mean, sure, I don’t know the future. But your Democratic present is looking an awful lot like our Republican past. I’m worried there’s something taking shape in front of you that you can’t quite see. Or maybe you do see it, and aren’t as alarmed by it as I am," Longwell said in an op-ed published in The Bulwark on Saturday morning.

"Either way, it’s my firm belief that if you don’t do something to change course, America is going to be forced to choose between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in 2020."
