The runner-up to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for President, Senator Bernie Sanders, today announced his candidacy for the 2020 election. Sanders, an Independent who caucuses with the Democrats in the U.S. Senate, immediately moves to near the front of the already-crowded pack of candidates with wide name recognition and a well-oiled fundraising apparatus.
“Our campaign is not only about defeating Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history. It is not only about winning the Democratic nomination and the general election. Our campaign is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.”Senator and Presidential Candidate, Bernie Sanders
