Bernie Sanders was a Democratic candidate for President of the United States in 2015 and 2016. He served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, for eight years before defeating an incumbent Republican to be the sole congressperson for the state in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1991. Elected to the Senate in 2007, Sanders is now in his second term, making him the longest-serving independent in the history of Congress. When Sanders began his race for the presidency, it was considered by the political establishment and the media to be a “fringe” campaign. By the time Sanders’s campaign came to a close, it was clear that the pundits had it wrong. Bernie ran one of the most consequential campaigns in the modern history of the country. He received more than 13 million votes in primaries and caucuses throughout the country, won twenty-two states, and more than 1.4 million people attended his public meetings. In Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In (Thomas Dunne Books), Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all―and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better.
