30. That's a shame, but either the press release will be inaccurate or it may hurt his campaign.

If you say Vermont Senator Sanders (I), it's accurate--technically-- because that's how he became Senator and how his votes are officially recorded.

However, as you may have observed from posts here, many Democrats assume he is also running for President as an indie and resent the hell out of that. Or they resent that he has not been a Dem all his life and now wants to, in their minds, take advantage of the Party to improve his own by running as a Dem. Yet, if you use (D), they may see 30 years worth of (I) info, including in media and in the Congressional Record.

Others just won't be able to wrap their heads around an indie running for POTUS as a Democrat. So, it may be your bleeding feet or his.
