A couple of left-leaning women trying to get men to swipe right for Bernie Sanders on Tinder found themselves locked out of the dating app according to a report from Reuters on Friday.

The two women confirmed to Reuters that their accounts had been suspended after they had been reported too many times for sending campaign messages promoting Sanders’ presidential bid.

Robyn Gedrich, 23, of Brick, N.J., said she sent “Do you feel the bern?” messages to 60 people a day for the past two weeks. She asked people to text a message to a specific number which would lead to a prompt to start receiving messages from the Vermont senator’s campaign.

Haley Lent, 22, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, told Reuters that she was locked out of the app Thursday night after she talked to 50 to 100 people. Lent’s Twitter feed has a few tweets about how she’s ready for a #PoliticalRevolution in the form of Sanders. She even showed off a new tattoo depicting Sanders’ hair and glasses.

Gedrich told Reuters that some of the replies she got from men simply said, “Trump2016.”
