This week, U.S. Senator Bernard Sanders told Time Magazine, “We need candidates who are prepared to represent the working families of this country, who are prepared to stand up to the big money interests, who are prepared to support an aggressive agenda to expand the middle class. And I am prepared to be that candidate.”
Sanders said to The Nation, “Somebody has got to represent the working-class and the middle-class of this country in standing up to the big-money interests who have so much power over the economic and political life of this country. So I am prepared to run for president of the United States.”
Over at Change.org, there’s a petition asking Sanders to run as a Green Party candidate. “We understand that a only a candidate such as Bernie Sanders–a US senator with a national following and who has already proven he can garner hundreds of thousands of votes–has a real chance to begin building a third US political party vote by vote and percentage point by percentage point,” writes Michael Trudeau.
They’ve even begun a campaign page for Sanders 2016 over at Pinterest.
It’s time to start getting prepared for a 2016 Bernie Sanders for President campaign. We’ve started a shop of Sanders 2016 political gear to help spread the word.
