About the Speaker
Bernie Sanders is an Independent Senator from Vermont. In 2006, he was elected to the U.S. Senate after 16 years as Vermont’s sole congressman in the House of Representatives. In Congress, Bernie has fought tirelessly for working families and a progressive foreign policy that prioritizes diplomacy over unilateral military action. As chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Bernie worked across the aisle to “bridge Washington’s toxic partisan divide and cut one of the most significant deals in years.” Sanders serves as the chair of outreach for the Democratic caucus and is the ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee.
