Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders entered the crowded Democrat Party primary today.
He jumped into the race with this video release Tuesday morning.
Sen. Bernie Sanders announced he is running for president of the United States and called on Americans from all over the nation to join him in building a massive grassroots movement to win the Democratic primary, defeat Donald Trump, and enact an agenda that serves all people, not just the wealthy few.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., announced Tuesday he will make another bid for president by entering the already crowded 2020 race, as he tries to rekindle the grassroots energy from his 2016 primary run against Hillary Clinton.
Sanders made the announcement in an interview with Vermont Public Radio, followed by a web video and email to supporters.
“Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for,” he told supporters.
While blasting President Trump as a “pathological liar,” Sanders said in the radio interview he’s running to pursue policies like universal health care and a $15 minimum wage. His challenge this time, however, will be standing out in a field of candidates who largely have adopted the big-government policies he championed three years ago.
The Republican National Committee cited his influence on the field’s present-day policies in blasting his announcement. “Bernie Sanders is a self-avowed socialist who wants to double your taxes so the government can take over your health care. The vast majority of voters oppose his radical agenda, just like they are going to oppose all the 2020 Democrats who have rushed to embrace it,” RNC Spokesman Michael Ahrens said.
Sanders, a progressive populist who identifies as a democratic socialist, put up a serious fight against Democratic contender Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary. More
I wonder how many Democrats will pony up for Bernie again after learning how rigged the 2016 primary was?
I think the fix is already in and the DNC has already decided he is too old and white, and have decided that Kamala Harris is their golden ticket for the next election.
