Report: Sanders Likely Will Make Second Presidential Run

Political allies of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., say it is becoming more likely that he will jump into the 2020 presidential race, The Hill is reporting.

 “I expect him to run,” said Larry Cohen,  chairman of Our Revolution, a movement formed by Sanders supporters after he lost to Hillary Clinton in his bid to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

And Jeff Weaver, who served as Sanders’ campaign manager in 2016, added:

“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.”

But some Democrats maintain that Sanders has divided the party and is partly to blame for Clinton’s defeat, according to The Hill. They say he should not be considered as a party candidate.

“He’s completely using the party to serve his best interests,” one Clinton aide told The Hill. “He’s a Democrat only when it’s convenient to be a Democrat.”

A Zogby Poll, conducted in June, showed Democrats favored former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 race. However, Sanders was close behind in second place.
