Bernard Sanders has provided as a U.S. senator from Vermont since 2007, and previously served as a U.S. congressman from Vermont from 1991-2007. He is a self-described “democratic socialist” and is presently second — behind simply former Vice President Joe Biden — in most 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination polling. Sanders, who is Jewish by birth, is a native of Brooklyn, New York, and went to college at the University of Chicago. It was during his time in Chicago that Sanders first became active in socialist circles and to become involved in other far-left induces. Although he has sometimes caucused with the Democratic Party during his time in Congress, Sanders has invested most of his adult political life as a registered political independent.
Sanders’ first wedlock ended in divorce, and he has been married since 1988 to Jane O’Meara Sanders, a social worker and college administrator. He has four children and seven grandchildren. If successfully be appointed for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination, he “couldve been” the oldest nominee for a major American registered political party in modern history( he is now 77 years old ).
Although Sanders’ far-left across-the-board slants were once considered to be an outlier within Democratic/ Democratic-adjacent circles, he is now widely reputed to be one of the Democratic Party considered leaders.
Electoral History: In the 1970 s, Sanders unsuccessfully strove various political bureaux in Vermont under the partisan label of the Liberty Union Party, which is best described as “anti-war” and generally far-left in orientation. Sanders first successfully attempted elected agency in 1980, when he extended for mayor of Burlington, Vermont. He provided as mayor of Burlington for eight years, and was known for restricting private property rights, enforcing price control, creating belonging taxes, taking “goodwill” trip-ups to the Soviet Union, Cuba, and Sandinista-run Nicaragua, and flying a hammer-and-sickle Soviet flag in his mayoral office.
In 1990, Sanders became the first political independent to be elected to Congress since 1950. He was re-elected seven subsequent times, generally winning by wide perimeters. Soon after his election to Congress, he co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which he used as a vehicle for far-left political activism while still refusing to join the Democratic Party.
