While Focused on Current Fights, Sanders Quietly Talked 2020 With Campaign Team
Despite his resistance to publicly discussing the 2020 presidential race, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) privately met with key members of his campaign team during the #TrumpShutdown last weekend to discuss his potential bid for the nation’s highest office, several Democratic insiders told Politico.
Sources said the campaign team’s main message to Sanders was clear: “You would be one of the front-runners for the Democratic nomination. And if you want to run, it’s time to start seriously planning accordingly.”
The team’s predictions align with polling results from President Donald Trump’s first year in office, which have consistently shown significant voter support for Sanders, should he choose to run in the next presidential race.

“Part of the discussion included gaming out how the rest of the field might look,” Politico notes, “since 2016’s landscape—effectively pitting Sanders directly against Hillary Clinton—was far more straightforward than the expected 2020 free-for-all”
Top 2020 contenders on the left, according to political analysts and observers, include Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Kirsten Gilliband (D-N.Y.) as well as former Vice President Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
