This will make the primaries worth paying attention to. There may not be any additional Democratic Party candidates. Sanders is, of course, going to have to join the Democratic Party in order to run.
Sanders is the first official challenger for the Democratic nomination to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who announced her candidacy earlier this month.
Sanders, a self-described “democratic socialist,” has been hinting that he would seek the White House for nearly two years.
The senator, who has been in the upper chamber since 2007, previously served as Vermont’s at-large congressman and as mayor of Burlington. He caucuses with the Democratic Party in the Senate and is categorized as a Democrat for the purpose of committee assignments.
Actually the Republican clown car is going to be pretty entertaining as well.
