WASHINGTON – Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders says he’s running for president in 2020.
The 77-year-old told Vermont Public Radio on Tuesday that he planned to again seek the Democratic presidential nomination.
The self-described democratic socialist challenged Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary in 2016.
Sanders earned a loyal following with his passionate defense of liberal proposals including free college tuition and single-payer health care. He will face off against several other Democratic candidates who also want to appeal to the party’s base.
