Bernie Sanders is an Independent Senator from Vermont. In 2006, he was elected to the U.S. Senate after 16 years as Vermont’s sole congressman in the House of Representatives. In Congress, Bernie has fought tirelessly for working families and a progressive foreign policy that prioritizes diplomacy over unilateral military action.
