Bernie Sanders Announces 2nd Run For President
Bernie Sanders is shooting his shot for the Oval Office again in 2020. The 77-year-old Vermont Senator announced Tuesday in an interview with the Vermont Public Radio about his bid:
We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it’s time to move that revolution forward. [I plan to] take the values that all of us in Vermont are proud of — a belief in justice, in community, in grassroots politics, in town meetings — that’s what I’m going to carry all over this country.
Sanders attempted to run for President in 2016 against Hilary Clinton, but failed to make it out of the primaries. His agenda for the United States has not changed much, considering he’s still pushing for Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, and free higher education.
Three years ago, during our 2016 campaign, when we brought forth our progressive agenda we were told that our ideas were ‘radical,’ and ‘extreme.’ These policies and more are now supported by a majority of Americans.
In addition to his announcement, Sanders uploaded a 10-minute video to YouTube explaining his agenda and why he would make a qualified President, if selected.
Sanders joins fellow Democratic candidates who’ve announced their bid like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, and Andrew Yang.
