Bernie Sanders supporters are still feeling the sting of their candidate’s loss in the race for the Democratic nomination for president and Hillary Clinton’s subsequent loss of the election to Donald Trump. Sanders’s fans, political observers and the media have been asking him for months whether he’ll consider running again in 2020.
The Vermont senator’s usual answer is that it’s way too early to talk about the next election. He reiterated as much in an interview that will air Thursday morning on Sirius XM’s “Make It Plain With Mark Thompson.” But when Thompson asked Sanders whether he’s leaving 2020 on the table or taking it off, the senator answered, more directly than he normally does, that he isn’t not considering it.
“No, I am not taking it off the table. I just have not made any decisions,” Sanders said. “And I think it’s much too early,” he continued, directing the conversation to what he believes the public should be focusing on at this time.
