Next this evening, Bernie is back.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders officially announced today that he is running for president
again.
In a video, he says he started a political revolution in 2016 and that now he wants to finish it.
And what we know about Joe Biden tonight.
I’m running for president.
The Vermont senator sparked a progressive movement in 2016, taking on the establishment and Hillary Clinton.
But this time around, he’s got more competition.
Some who also support his old rallying cries like Medicare for all and free college tuition.
He’s up against six female Democratic candidates.
And Mary, a lot of talk tonight about one Democrat who’s still publicly on the fence, former Vice President Joe Biden.
He will have a decision to announce soon.
And David, sources close to the former vice president tell us they get a sense that he is likely to run.
