Sanders signs pledge to run for president as Democrat

Sanders signs pledge to run for president as Democrat Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) signed a pledge on Tuesday agreeing to run for president as a Democrat, a spokesperson for the longtime independent's campaign said. The move came in response to a rule passed by the Democratic National Committee last year that anyone seeking the party's 2020 presidential nomination must do so as a Democrat. That rule change was seen by Sanders's supporters as a direct response to the Vermont sen ator, who identifies as a democratic socialist and has long refused to consider himself a member of the party despite caucusing with Democrats in the Senate. To be sure, Sanders filed to run for president last month as a Democrat.

WASHINGTON — Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign says the Vermont senator received treatment at a walk-in clinic Friday for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina.

Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door, and went to a walk-in clinic. Sanders received a half-dozen stiches and was given a "clean bill of health," she added.

Jones says Sanders is continuing with all scheduled events, including a breakfast with local clergy and a round table on health care while in South Carolina. Sanders will travel to Nevada ahead of his first rally in the early-voting state since launching his presidential bid, which will be held Saturday.


Democratic Socialists group endorses Bernie Sanders for 2020.
The group calls Sanders "the only democratic socialist running for president in 2020."
