What a wingman.

One of the Democratic presidential candidate's staffers posted on Twitter that he pulled off a great proposal this weekend, with a little help from his boss.

Hector Sigala, the campaign's social media director, said he proposed to Kimberley Riofrio using the below video from Sanders.

Thanks for the assist, Bernie. #Engaged


"He's a good guy, why don't you help him out?" Sanders said with a smile.

People said the proposal seemed totally perfect.

@hgsigala Congrats and I love @BernieSanders even more now.

And that it made them feel the Bern even more.

@missxtinemusic @hgsigala @BernieSanders Just when I think I can't admire him more, he does something like this.

BuzzFeed News has contacted Sigala and the Sanders campaign for more on the proposal.
