"These are frightening and unprecedented times,” Sanders wrote last week. “If reelected, you can be sure that I will continue to be the fiercest opponent in the Senate to the rightwing extremism of (President Donald) Trump and the Republican leadership. But being anti-Trump and anti-Republican is not enough. We need to continue our fight for a progressive agenda which will take on oligarchy, and improve the lives of working people throughout our country. “
Sanders, who was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1990 and to the Senate in 2006, is expected to win his re-election bid, according to The Hill.
