Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) recently told MSNBC that, even after winning the Democratic party, he plans to run for re-election in 2018 as an Independent.
Sanders stated, “I have always run as an Independent, and that’s what I will do. And I think people in Vermont understand that. We have a very good relationship with the Democratic Party. I suspect that this coming campaign we’ll be putting more money — our campaign will be putting more money into the Vermont Democratic Party than anybody else and supporting a whole lot of good Democratic candidates.”
