Report: Bernie Sanders records 2020 presidential bid announcement


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Sen. Bernie Sanders is reportedly poised to launch a second potential bid for the White House.

POLITICO reports the two-term senator has recorded a campaign video, in which he says he’s running for president in 2020, citing two sources familiar with Sanders’ campaign. 

The political website reported in January that the Sanders team has raced to hire top staff for his campaign. 

Chuck Rocha, a Democratic strategist who is a senior adviser to Sanders, is expected to join him again if he runs. 

Sanders spokeswoman Sarah Ford did not return a message from Politico requesting comment.
