Sanders for President

AP says Bernie Sanders to run as a Democrat:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is going to run for president as a Democrat.

The independent who describes himself as a ‘‘democratic socialist’’ will announce Thursday that he plans to seek the Democratic Party’s nomination in 2016.

That’s according to two people familiar with Sanders’ plans. They aren’t authorized to discuss the decision by name and spoke to The Associated Press under condition of anonymity.

Sanders will become the second major Democrat in the race, joining former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In the run-up to his announcement, Sanders has urged Clinton to speak out strongly about issues related to income inequality and climate change.

  1. Yay! At least I have someone to vote for without holding my nose!
    Now I just wish someone would primary conservative in Democrat clothing, Ronsellout Wyden. Supposedly there is no one in the state with the stature to challenge him. Which makes me which someone from Hollywood would do it. Something just to make a point about not tolerating traitors.
    Maybe that transplant from Portlandia, Fred something. He could keep Al Franken company. Or better yet, Carrie Brownstein.

  2. One of the McMenamin brothers should primary Ron Wyden.
    (Assuming that they are Democrats.)
