SANDERS: time to move that revolution forward
(FOX NEWS) – Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., announced on Tuesday he will make another bid for president by entering the already crowded 2020 race.
Sanders made the announcement in an interview with Vermont Public Radio. The full interview is set to be released later Tuesday morning.
“We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it’s time to move that revolution forward,” he told the radio station.
Sanders, a progressive populist, put up a serious fight against Democratic contender Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.
He joins a field already that already consists of top Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker. And two of the most progressive lawmakers in the Senate – Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Jeff Merkley of Oregon – are also seriously considering presidential bids.
Sanders, 77, has had to deal in recent months with a sexual harassment and mistreatment controversy stemming from his 2016 campaign staff, which elicited apologies from the senator.
