(Washington Times) Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders was urged recently by a local newspaper not to run for president in 2020 and was told to “step out of the way.”
“Bernie Sanders should not run for president. In fact, we beg him not to,” the Barre Montpelier Times Argus editorial board wrote on Saturday.
