Vermont Public Radio has coverage of Bernie Sanders Kicks Off His Campaign In Burlington.
The article has the following link:
Full audio of Senator Bernie Sanders speaking at the event to kick off his campaign for President, in Burlington, Vt.
I don’t know of any candidate running this year or in the past 4 decades who holds out a greater possibility of getting this country back on track as does this candidacy of Bernie Sanders. It would be a tragic mistake if the voters of this country didn’t get to hear this message, and decide for themselves where they want this country to go.
Why limit this to The United States? There are probably billions of people around the world that would like to have a person like Bernie Sanders leading their country.
Bloomberg News has the article ‘Political Revolution': Bernie Sanders Officially Launches Democratic Presidential Bid. It has some video clips to go along with the audio above.
I know this is horse race coverage which we should not promote, but what fan of Bernie Sanders could resist taking heart from this excerpt.
Sanders, one of the most avowedly left-wing members of Congress, has risen steadily in polling since hinting at a bid. A November 2014 Bloomberg/Saint Anselm poll put his support in New Hampshire at just 6 percent to the 62 percent enjoyed by Hillary Clinton. At the start of May, Sanders had risen to 18 percent, benefiting from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s repeated insistence that she would not run for president.
