Bernie Sanders 2

  • Sanders has pushed campaign finance reform and called on Congress to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision, which he called “one of the worst in American history.”
  • Sanders’ biggest annual fundraiser is usually a $25-per-person sunset cruise on Lake Champlain.
  • Sanders turned a fiery, hourslong filibuster against extending the Bush tax cuts into a book. During the 2012 election cycle, his campaign gave a copy to donors of at least $50.
