Campaign 2020

The Return of the Bern: Sanders in for 2020

Bernie Sanders will run for president in 2020.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who rightfully won the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 but was passed over at the Democratic National Convention for the pre-ordained Hillary R. Clinton, is tossing his hat in the ring for the party’s 2020 nomination.

“I’m running for president. I am asking you to join me today as part of an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least 1 million people from across the country,” Sanders said on Twitter, linking to a video.

“Real change never takes place from the top on down, but always from the bottom on up,” he said in the video.

The video touts “free” college tuition, Medicare For All (“free” healthcare for everyone) and, of course, worships the political left’s Church of Climate Change.

“Our economy is rigged,” he said later. “We have a campaign finance system which is corrupt. Brothers and sisters, we have a lot of work in front of us. If we are prepared to stand together, there is no end to what the great people of our nation can accomplish.”

The candidate – who will run on a socialist platform – has never held a private sector job in his life.

However, he faces an ever-growing field on Democratic Party challengers.

Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand have already declared candidacy, garnering significant press. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, former San Antonio mayor and Obama administration employee Julian Castro, and Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend Indiana, are also in the running.

Rumors have emerged that former Vice President Joe Biden is considering a run, and former Texas State Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who has been slinking around since his U.S. Senate loss to Ted Cruz, is still a potential candidate.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has also been making noise about an independent run the presidency.
