Bernie’s Running for Re-Election on Independent Ticket


Bernie’s Running for Re-Election on Independent Ticket

https://gobling.wordpress.com/2016/02/14/bernies-running-for-re-election-too/

The Democratic 2016 Presidential campaign is in full swing with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders battling it out state-by-state. Yet while all this hoopla is going on, a small fact remains quietly perched on the political back burner: Sanders is also running for re-election as an Independent. His Senate seat will be decided anew with the 2018 midterm cycle, and if Vermonters vote favorably, he’ll take office at the age of 77 for his third term.

Sanders is already collecting money for his next Senate run. A look at these contributors reveals a stark contrast from the grassroots coalition he appeals to in his Presidential campaign. Far from being a collection of Milleniels who are newly entering the job market or struggling blue collar workers, these donors are primarily retired or entrenched in professional positions.

I have concerns about Bernie Sanders running as a "Democrat of convenience" .....Anyone else think this is deceptive?
