Sanders: ‘I’m Prepared’ to Run in 2016

by Andrew Johnson

Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) isn’t quite buying the Democrats’ hype over Hillary Clinton, and would be ready to throw his hat into the ring. While he did not directly cite Clinton, he emphasized the importance of a candidate’s policies rather than “simply taking huge campaign contributions from the wealthy and powerful.”

“It seems to me it would be a real disgrace where those issues — the needs of working families, the needs of the middle class, the needs of the elderly — were not front and center,” Sanders said on MSNBC on Monday. “What I have said is that candidate is needed and if somebody else doesn’t step up, I am prepared to do it.”
