Bernie Sanders is officially in the running for the 2020 presidential race, with the Vermont Senator telling Vermont Public Radio in an interview that aired Tuesday morning that he’s ready to “move the revolution forward.”
“We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it’s time to move that revolution forward,” the independent lawmaker said in the interview, noting how he stunned Democrats when he made a strong bid for the party’s 2016 nomination.
“I wanted to let the people of the state of Vermont know about this first,” Sanders told VPR’s Bob Kinzel. “And what I promise to do is, as I go around the country, is to take the values that all of us in Vermont are proud of—a belief in justice, in community, in grassroots politics, in town meetings—that’s what I’m going to carry all over this country.”
