Sen. Bernie Sanders First to Declare Against Hillary

Sen. Bernie Sanders First to Declare Against Hillary

Hillary Clinton drew her first official primary opponent yesterday after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced he will formally begin his bid for Democratic nomination.

The only avowed socialist in Congress, 73-year-old Sanders has aimed hardline rhetoric at Hillary. He labeled her as inimical to the interests of the working class and obligated to big-money special interests.

Sanders claims the United States has fallen into a crisis situation controlled by a “handful of billionaires.” He argues they have pushed income disparity between the rich and middle class Americans to “obscene levels,” Real Clear Politics reports.

Sanders’ shot at competing with Hillary’s millions is next to none. Some predict her raising millions, if not billions, of dollars in the upcoming election cycle.

However, the populist appeal of an anti-Wall Street message could force Hillary to make appeals to left wing democrats. Moving left would prevent those voters from going independent in the general election as they did in the 2000 election.

A real threat is Sanders message and its ability to reach the Democrat faithful. It also paves the way for a possible late candidacy from Sen. Elizabeth Warren.



  1. The democrats are now going to have to stay with the extremists in their party. That’s all they have left. No room for reason or debate anymore democrats. It’s Heil Hitler all the way with them.

    • Yep, in open primaries Republicans should cross over. Here’s a list of states that allow that for those who are not sure.

      Arizona (Semi-closed, with primaries open only to unaffiliated or unrepresented voters)
      Hawaii (Open primary for state, local, and congressional races; caucus system for presidential races.)
      Massachusetts (All races’ primaries open for “unenrolled”/unaffiliated voters only)
      New Hampshire
      North Carolina
      North Dakota
      South Carolina

  2. Don’t be fooled folks. This is a set-up from the Clinton Camp. The only reason Sanders is in is to make Hillary seem more moderate.

  3. The Democrat party/New Communist party love their corrupt politicians too much.A Communist and a Corrupt done nothing old rethread,what a crew to be proud of
