He’s back! This morning on Vermont Public Radio, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders launched his campaign for president.

The announcement was made early in the morning on local radio, who then informed hundreds of other networks around the country.

Mr. Sanders chose CBS as the network of his choice for an interview with the Senator to discuss his plans to make the nation better.

Bernie said the only difference between this campaign and the one he ran four years ago is that he is going to WIN.  He has raised about $6 million in the 24 hours after he announced his 2020 presidential campaign launch.

Sen. Kamala Harris, a very liberal Californian, had previously held the quickly changing record when she raised $1.5 million in the 24 hours following her announcement in late January.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar said she raised just under $1 million in the first two days of her campaign.
