Sanders scores platform victory, calls for $15 minimum wage

FILE - In this June 29, 2016 file photo, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. heads to the Senate chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington. For Sanders, a campaign that began as a liberal crusade will probably end that way, with the Vermont senator still fighting for the issues that made up his “political revolution” even as his clout fades. In the weeks since Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination, her irascible primary rival won a few policy concessions from her campaign and influenced the shape of the party’s platform. But he’s also angered fellow lawmakers for not promptly endorsing his primary foe and has seen his influence wane as President Barack Obama and Sen. Elizabeth Warren stepped in to unify the party behind its presumptive nominee. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Bernie Sanders’ crusade to shape the Democratic party platform scored a win late Friday night, with the approval of an amendment calling for increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 over time.
