Rumors That Bernie Sanders May Run For President Again In 2020 Emerge Online

By Chet Dawson

Bernie Sanders made history as the most successful first-time Presidential candidate not to end up with the nomination.

He went from a little-known but locally dominant independent Senator in Vermont to securing just under half of America's Democratic primary votes, making economic inequality his primary focus and challenging the establishment political system. Since the election he's maintained his position as primary foil of the cartoon billionaire currently occupying the White House and has long maintained the distinction of being the most popular political figure in the nation. Just Wednesday he hosted an online town hall on the topic of Universal Healthcare and got a staggering 1.1 million people watching live. He introduced a universal healthcare bill in 2013 with zero co-authors - now he has sixteen, including young-gun Democratic senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. 

So with all this momentum, what's a prominent voice of the opposition party to do? Mull things over, and it seems this week they did just that.
