HomePolitical NewsWATCH: Bernie Sanders Joins the Party, Announces He is Running for President Mike Vance February 19, 2019 Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders joins the party and entered the already crowded Democrat Party primary on Tuesday. The 77-year-old Sanders announced his intention to run by video this morning. This came after President Trump made his historic speech against socialism in Miami on Monday. Sanders is running, despite the Democratic Party rigging the primary against him to make sure Hillary Clinton was the victor. Per Fox News: Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., announced Tuesday he will make another bid for president by entering the already crowded 2020 race, as he tries to rekindle the grassroots energy from his 2016 primary run against Hillary Clinton. Sanders made the announcement in an interview with Vermont Public Radio, followed by a web video and email to supporters. “Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for,” he told supporters. While blasting President Trump as a “pathological liar,” Sanders said in the radio interview he’s running to pursue policies like universal health care and a $15 minimum wage. His challenge this time, however, will be standing out in a field of candidates who largely have adopted the big-government policies he championed three years ago. So who will be the Democrat to emerge from the group of candidates in the primaries? At this point it's anyone's guess. Harris, Beto, etc. are all having trouble gaining momentum. This is because they have a tendency to put their foot in their mouth on a weekly basis.
