Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is hoping to make a comeback after aiming to inspire a progressive movement during his 2016 campaign.

“If there’s somebody else who appears who can, for whatever reason, do a better job than me, I’ll work my a– off to elect him or her,” Sanders told New York Magazine in November. “If it turns out that I am the best candidate to beat Donald Trump, then I will probably run.”

During an interview on Vermont Public Radio on Feb. 19, Sanders confirmed he’s running again.

“We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it’s time to move that revolution forward,” he told the radio station.
