Feel The Bern!
Bernie Sanders announced his 2020 presidential campaign and this time he plans on winning. Bernie Sanders plans to run a grass-roots and anti-establishment campaign that only accepts small dollar donations. As soon as he announced his presidential run he raised 4 million dollars in just 12 hours, more than Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar who are part of the establishment. Bernie Sanders is the most popular senator in the country. He has immense name recognition and high favorability ratings. Many people trust Bernie because he is government by the people, for the people.
In 2016 Bernie Sanders unfortunately lost in the primary elections to Hillary Clinton, who was a centrist that ran a pro-establishment campaign. She gave speeches full of platitudes and cliches that did not talk about the important issues that Americans wished the government would solve. After the demoralizing defeat, Senator Sanders was still going around the nation helping organizations like the West Virginia teacher’s march. He is also supports legislation for Medicare-for-all, free college, and ending all wars.
Many pro-establishment media and corporate democrats are already trying to sabotage his campaign. When CNN hosted Bernie Sanders’s town hall they did not disclose when the questioners ties to the Democratic party and they were asking controversial questions like harassment in his campaign when multiple candidates in the 2016 campaign had sexual harassment reports as well. However, these slanderous comments will not deter Bernie Sanders presidential run because he has a dream for the American people.
