Yesterday, we mentioned that a Bernie Sanders campaign announcement was imminent. Today he he made it official. The socialist candidate is officially running for president in 2020.

According to Fox News:

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., announced Tuesday he will make another bid for president by entering the already crowded 2020 race, as he tries to rekindle the grassroots energy from his 2016 primary run against Hillary Clinton.

Sanders made the announcement in an interview with Vermont Public Radio, followed by a web video and email to supporters.

"Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for," he told supporters.

While blasting President Trump as a "pathological liar," Sanders said in the radio interview he's running to pursue policies like universal health care and a $15 minimum wage. His challenge this time, however, will be standing out in a field of candidates who largely have adopted the big-government policies he championed three years ago.

Sanders is 77 which adds a new twist to his candidacy along with scandals involving his 2016 campaign which include sexual harassment and mistreatment of staff.
