Bernie Sanders has repeatedly declined to answer questions about whether he is planning to run for president again in 2020.
But last week Politico reported that Sanders had called a meeting with his top advisors to discuss a potential campaign – signaling that the 76-year-old Vermont senator is seriously considering it.
If he does end up running again Sanders would likely become the frontrunner in the Democratic primaries and with the 2018 midterm elections quickly approaching 2020 no longer seems that far away.
The 2020 Democratic primaries are almost certain to have a crowded field and it is unlikely that the party establishment will get behind an avowed ‘democratic socialist’ even if polls suggest he is the most popular politician in America.
While Sanders became a national sensation in 2016 he remains an outsider in Washington and within the Democratic Party and his anti-establishment politics have angered more than a few party leaders.
Indeed the divisions within the Democratic Party that were evidenced during the 2016 primaries are likely to be magnified in 2018 and 2020.
At the center of that debate will be the question of money in politics.
