Washington, Feb 17: Former US presidential candidate from the Democratic Party, Sen Bernie Sanders, intends to run for presidency again, the Politico website reported on Saturday, citing two informed sources.
According to the sources, Sanders and his team are already conducting interviews with candidates for seats in the government in the event of his victory.
The sources also said that Sanders had already recorded a video announcing his decision to run for president in the 2020 campaign. However, it is not yet clear when the video would be published.
Late last year, Sanders already said he could take part in the 2020 US presidential elections, adding that he will make such a decision only if he is sure that he is the "best candidate" to beat incumbent President Donald Trump.
Sanders already ran for presidency in 2016, but lost to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primaries. Clinton ultimately lost to Trump in the general election. Most polls then showed that Sanders could beat Trump if he ran against him. Later, it was revealed that the leadership of the US Democratic Party initially played up to Clinton against Sanders. The scandal ended with the resignation of the party leadership. (SPUTNIK)
