Bernie Sanders Makes Big Announcement Regarding Political Future

( – Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders officially launched his re-election bid on May 6, a move that surprised many political analysts because of his age and the term limits for the upper chamber. In a video announcement published on social media, the radical leftist and former presidential candidate said his “intention” was to seek another term in the Senate so he could keep battling for the people of Vermont.

He also said in the video that, if he gets re-elected, he’ll be in a “strong position” to help every single Vermonter in a difficult time, not only for the state but also for the country. Sanders added that over the last few years, he has delivered “important progress” for Vermont and has managed to address some complex challenges. The senator also claimed that everything that he has done so far isn’t enough, which is the reason why he has to serve for another term so the state can become what every Vermonter deserves.

Sanders, who is 82 years old and caucuses with the Democratic Party, is running for a fourth term of six years. He was the runner-up for the 2020 and 2016 Democratic presidential nominations and currently holds the chair of the upper chamber’s health care committee.

In the 2016 primary, Sanders lost with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in what was described as a controversial election after WikiLeaks revealed the Democratic National Committee’s efforts to sabotage his campaign. Many journalists and political analysts have claimed that something similar happened in the 2020 primary, where he lost against former Vice President Joe Biden at a moment when many polls showed Sanders as the main favorite.

While the independent senator has criticized President Biden on many occasions, he recently said that everyone should support the commander-in-chief in the 2024 presidential election. He claimed that a victory of former President and GOP nominee Donald Trump would be devastating for the United States.
