Vermont Newspaper on Bernie 2020: “We Beg Him Not To”

“Bernie Sanders should not run for president. In fact, we beg him not to,” quoth an editorial in the Barre Montpelier Times Argus. Primary concerns aired against 2016 socialist presidential candidate and current U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) were his penchant for appearing more on the mainstream media than local news outlets and the likelihood that he will simply divide the Democrats’ ticket just like last time. “We fear a Sanders run risks dividing the well-fractured Democratic Party, and could lead to another split in the 2020 presidential vote,” the editorial continued. With that sort of anti-endorsement, we’re wondering if we should jump on the Bernie train. That said, the greatest threat to the Democrats may be that so many candidates will be vying for Bernie’s socialist base.

A Vermont newspaper on Monday begged Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., not to run for president in 2020.

“Bernie Sanders should not run for president. In fact, we beg him not to,” said the editorial published by the Barre Montpelier Times Argus.

“That is an unfavorable opinion, especially among most Vermonters and progressives who support the platform that has come to define him,” the paper added. “But at this point, there are more things about another Sanders run at the White House that concern us than excite us.”

The paper said another Sanders run would divide the Democratic Party, as his run did against Hillary Clinton.

“We fear a Sanders run risks dividing the well-fractured Democratic Party, and could lead to another split in the 2020 presidential vote,” it said.
