Remember when Al Franken was creeping up as a dark horse candidate for the 2020 election? Well that went south. The Democrats are in complete shambles.
So who is the left looking to bring in as their candidate for the 2020 election? Surely they will get some fresh blood in there and someone who can energize the party, right? WRONG.
Ancient far left quack Bernie Sanders is leading the charge!
Per The Hill:
Advisers to the senator are telegraphing that Sanders is eying a 2020 run — and his network is already ready to go, with supporters convinced that he was the candidate who would have beaten President Trump in 2016.
“His people have never gone away,” said Democratic strategist Brad Bannon. “And he has a loyal core following out there that will be with him come hell or high water.”
Also working in Sanders’s favor, Bannon said, is the leftward shift of the Democratic Party.
“The Sanders wing is becoming the dominant wing of the party,” he said.
Still, strategists note that Sanders would be 79 in 2020, which could work against him at a time when Democrats are hungry for change.
Bernie Sanders? Are you serious? The Democratic Party is. That’s their guy. He’d be 80 in the year 2020 when he is inaugurated if he would somehow win.
