Out of Far-left Field: Bernie Sanders Formally Launches Run for President

Vermont senator Bernie Sanders formally launched his long-shot bid to unseat Hillary Clinton from the left on Tuesday in a Burlington, Vermont, park.
Sanders, a self-described “Democratic socialist”, will mount a populist campaign focused on income inequality, campaign finance reform and fighting climate change.
He said, “There is something profoundly wrong when the top one-tenth of 1% owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90% and when 99% of all new income goes to the top 1%.”
