Sanders considers run for White House
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., drew a large crowd to the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College on Saturday.
During the event, Sanders said the middle class is disappearing, poverty is up and had strong words about health care in the United States.
“There is something profoundly wrong when, in this great nation, we are the only major country on earth that does not guarantee health care coverage as a right of citizenship,” he said.
Sanders said he is considering a bid for president in 2016. He said he hasn’t decided if he would run as an independent or a Democrat. He said he doesn’t shy away from a platform built on a socialist agenda.
“To create a society in which all people have a fair shot rather than just a nation that is dominated by big money interests is something that I will fight for,” he said.
Sanders said his decision on a run for the White House will not be affected by Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy decision.
