Vermont Public Radio is reporting that Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will announce that he is running as a Democrat for President.

Sanders, 73, a self described socialist was first elected to the House of Representatives as a Socialist in 1990 and to the United States Senate in 2006 giving Sander an impressive resume to challenge front-runner Hillary Clinton on.

Sanders has been a critic of the Gulf War, the 2003 Iraq War, Patriot Act, and the NSA wiretapping which allows him to easily differentiate himself from Clinton.

The most recent Public Policy Poll released yesterday had Clinton leading Sanders in Iowa 62% to 14% with Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley at 6%, former Senator Jim Webb at 3%, and former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee at 2%.
