Jane Sanders recalls moment she became convinced Bernie should run [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by TexasTowelie (a host of the General Discussion forum).



.....a disabled veteran approached their table to thank the senator for the help his office provided in securing benefits.

Sanders' eyes welled with tears as she recalled what the man said next: "You've changed my life and if you run for president, I think that would be the best thing for the country."

As the man left, she remembered saying to her husband, "Okay, I think you have to do it."
