Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is expected to launch a 2020 presidential exploratory committee next week, according to two people familiar with the plans.

Sandersís is gearing up to release a video in the coming days announcing his exploratory committee. News that Sanders had already recorded the announcement video was first reported on Saturday by Politico.

Sandersís anticipated announcement is part of a so-called ďsoft launchĒ of a campaign, one person familiar with the plans told The Hill.

Forming an exploratory committee will allow Sanders to begin laying the groundwork of a campaign by raising money and hiring staff.

Josh Miller Lewis, a spokesperson for Sanders, did not immediately respond to The Hillís request for comment about the senatorís plans.
