'Fringe' no more: Bernie Sanders says nearly 1M supporters and counting rising up to realize 'political revolution'

(Worthy News) - Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. said Thursday his liberal ideas which were once seen as "fringe" are now infused into a mainstream America he hopes will rise up to support his second bid for the White House.

In his first prime-time interview since announcing his 2020 campaign for president, Sanders made his case to an MSNBC audience why he is running again when there are plenty of other progressive alternatives, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., this election cycle — a stark contrast to the 2016 roster.

"First of all, I'm proud of what we accomplished in 2016 and I'm proud that we changed the political discourse in this country," Sanders told host Chris Hayes. "That ideas are widely accepted, are part of the mainstream, are being supported by many Democratic candidates. If you will recall three years ago, these ideas were considered to be radical and extreme and fringe ideas." [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]

  1. Could happen.

    He stayed out of, and away, from Hillary's messes.

    We'll see,

    won't we?

    There are many variables in play that could either make him President or
    the USA rise up in a civil war.
