Bernie Sanders to sign pledge affirming he will run as a Democrat

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) plans to sign a pledge saying he will run as a Democrat in his bid for the presidency in 2020 and to govern as a Democrat if elected, campaign adviser Jeff Weaver told CNN.

The revelation comes one day after Sanders announced his plans to run for the presidency again in 2020 after an unsuccessful but competitive bid in 2016.

Sanders, an independent from Vermont, has drawn the ire of some Democrats for not fully embracing the party in the past, CNN noted.

Under new Democratic National Committee rules, Democratic candidates seeking the party’s nomination will be asked to pledge in writing that they will run and govern as a member of the Democratic Party.
