Bernie Sanders is hoping that 2020 is his year to become President.
Hillary Clinton and her cronies stole his chance in 2016.
But he just got the news that will destroy his 2020 campaign for good.
Bernie Sanders is responsible for making socialism mainstream in the Democrat Party.
For years he has been screaming about socialism in the U.S. Senate, with most of the American people laughing at him.
But everything changed for him in 2016, when he chose to run for President as a Democrat.
All the sudden, millions of Americans were on his side, and the Democrat Party started embracing some of his extreme ideas.
And now there are other socialists in the high level positions, openly embracing his ideas.
That’s why Sen. Sanders is hoping to use this momentum to torpedo himself into the White House.
His 2020 campaign is in full swing, already raising millions of dollars from mostly small donors.
But while his campaign is in full swing, his opposition is beginning to ready themselves to take him on.
And the latest person to join the anti-Bernie campaign is left-wing organizer David Brock.
Brock is the founder of Media Matters for America and is a Clinton loyalist.
Now Brock, from his position leading the left-wing American Bridge Super PAC is in talks with Democrat operatives to launch an effort to take on Sanders during the Democratic primaries.
Speaking to the New York Times, Brock reveals the plan to take on Bernie Sanders “sooner rather than later.”
Brock calls his campaign “the Bernie question,” and says it comes up in every fundraising call he is on.
“There’s a growing realization that Sanders could end up winning this thing, or certainly that he stays in so long that he damages the actual winner,” Brock said, likely using the 2016 election as reference.
While Sanders didn’t get the Democratic nomination in 2016, his campaign served to harm the Party’s nominee, Hillary Clinton in the election.
Many of Sanders’ supporters refused to support Hillary Clinton, which is reasonable considering how the Party stole the primary election from their candidate.
Clinton loyalists like Brock haven’t forgotten about that, and are ready to take on Sanders as early as possible to mitigate damage against another nominee.
From a mainstream Democrat point of view, this is probably the best approach.
There is no telling if Sanders’ supporters will support anybody that isn’t their candidate, but the longer he stays in the running, the more likely that will happen.
And if Sanders gets the nomination, there is no telling if mainstream Democrats will support him.
He holds many radical left-wing positions that are extreme, even in the modern Democrat Party.
But it seems that Sanders may be trying to moderate himself a bit.
In recent appearances he has been talking back more radical positions, even assuring crowds of people he is not for open borders.
He may finally be realizing that if he is going to take on Trump, he can’t be as radically left as his 2016 campaign was.
Do you think Bernie Sanders could beat President Trump?
