Bernie Sanders To Run For President Again in 2020
MONTPELIER, VT. -- Senator Bernie Sanders is making another run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The independent from Vermont made the announcement in an interview on Vermont Public Radio this morning. He also released an official campaign announcement video.
The 77-year-old Sanders says he's running to oppose President Trump and to enact many of the progressive ideas he championed in 2016.
That includes universal health care coverage, a 15-dollar minimum wage, and reducing student debt.
Sanders said he hopes to enlist a million people in what he called a "grassroots movement of people prepared to stand up and fight."
Sanders joins a growing field of more than a dozen Democrats who have either formally declared their candidacy or are expressing serious interest.
