Independent Senator Bernie Sanders18:53

This article is more than 5 years old.

Bernie Sanders is an unabashed lefty. The Senator from Vermont claims the mantel of "independent."

He's also called a liberal, a progressive, and refers to himself as an 'independent socialist."

He's got some big ideas about how to rein-in big banks, cut defense spending, repair the social safety net, and help the middle class.

His supporters want him to run for president. But he hasn't made the leap yet.

Even so, he's hitting all the campaign hot spots- He's made four trips to Iowa this year- He's been to New Hampshire, California, and South Carolina.


Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont.
