REPORT: Sanders allies reveal whether they expect him to make second White House bid
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Allies to Bernie Sanders say the Vermont Independent senator is increasingly likely to make a second bid for the White House in 2020 — once again as a Democrat.
“I expect him to run,” said Larry Cohen, the chairman of Our Revolution, a movement formed by Sanders operatives after their candidate lost the Democratic primary to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
The article goes on to state the following:
“He’s probably the most popular elected official,” Cohen added.
Sanders allies increasingly talk more confidently about the likelihood of a second presidential bid. Just a few months ago, the allies were more careful about his potential candidacy.
Jeff Weaver, who served as Sanders’s campaign manager in 2016, said Sanders “is being very thoughtful about” whether he enters the race.
“He’s very focused on the question of beating Trump and putting a Democrat in the White House,” Weaver said. “And if he runs it’s because he thinks he’s the one to do it.”
Weaver added that he’s “convinced” that his former boss “is the strongest candidate.”
Sanders has a lot going for him if he does decide to enter the Democratic primary, political observers say. For starters, he would bring an infrastructure built during the 2016 election, and his die-hard supporters give him a base that would be the envy of many candidates in what is expected to be a crowded field.
Allies of @BernieSanders and @SenWarren believe the #2020 Democratic primary is only big enough for one of them, @davecatanese writes: https://t.co/Ir9o6NafYI I sure the hell will NEVER vote for that mini-Hillary, Warren. She’s the same #1partyOligarchy ruining US all!
