Sanders eyes ‘bigger’ 2020 bid despite some warning signs

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — An insurgent underdog no more, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is laying the groundwork to launch a “bigger” presidential campaign than his first. And his advisers are predicting he would open the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season as a front-runner.

A final decision has not been made. But those closest to the 77-year-old democratic socialist suggest that neither age nor interest from a several liberal presidential prospects would dissuade him from taking a second shot at the presidency. And as Sanders’ brain trust gathered for a weekend Vermont summit, some spoke about a 2020 White House bid as if it was a foregone conclusion.

There were also signs of cracks in Sanders’ political base as some supporters eyed a 2020 Democratic field in which Sanders wouldn’t be the only anti-establishment liberal.
