Democrats Say Crazy Uncle Bernie Is Their Top Pick for 2020 …He Will be 80
Whew! Democrats are in worse shape than we thought.
Two weeks ago Senator Al Franken was a dark-horse candidate in 2020.
We all know how that ended.
And Bernie Sanders is the leading Democrat in the 2020 field.
The Hill reported:
Advisers to the senator are telegraphing that Sanders is eying a 2020 run — and his network is already ready to go, with supporters convinced that he was the candidate who would have beaten President Trump in 2016.
“His people have never gone away,” said Democratic strategist Brad Bannon. “And he has a loyal core following out there that will be with him come hell or high water.”
Also working in Sanders’s favor, Bannon said, is the leftward shift of the Democratic Party.
“The Sanders wing is becoming the dominant wing of the party,” he said.
Still, strategists note that Sanders would be 79 in 2020, which could work against him at a time when Democrats are hungry for change.
Bernie Sanders will be 80 years old in 2021.
He will be 80. https://t.co/TT5Ge87rK6
