Bernie Sanders is a Democratic candidate for President of the United States. Sanders spent 16 years as Vermont’s sole congressman in the House of Representatives before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.

Sanders has amassed considerable grassroots support relative to democratic frontrunner Hilary Clinton and is incredibly popular for his opposition to income inequality.

Promising to fight for a “progressive economic agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides health care for all,” the Senator is a formidable candidate in the democratic presidential primary.
