Sen Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is reportedly more seriously of the Democrat party insiders. Former Sanders 2016 campaign assistant Tezlyn Figaro is not responding.
Sen Bernie Sanders is everywhere this week.
“Why Bernie Sanders is hard to beat”, is the headline from The New York Times.
“Democratic Insider: Bernie Sanders, the nomination could win,” says a Political article.
And Sanders surrogates were more than happy to have the event on air, he is as competitive as ever in the run-up to the January campaign of crunch before Iowa, New Hampshire and beyond. Underlying the fresh attention to the two-time presidential candidate, though, is an immovable reality, the independent senator from Vermont is ticking again in the polls, leading the race for campaign cash by a long shot and proves to be a political staying power that eluded other big names in the crowded 2020 primary battle.

This raises the question: Could he actually hooks the nomination?
“You can go ahead and crown Joe Biden, if you want, but Bernie Sanders is not going anywhere and his supporters are not going anywhere”, the former Sanders 2016 campaign consultant Tezlyn Figaro said Friday on “Fox & Friends”.
Sanders was a part of the top League in the nomination of candidates, since he launched his campaign in February, but not necessarily, the ramp was enjoying the light so much as the former Vice-President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg-or even Sen. Kamala Harris, and Beto O’rourke, before you from.
His reputation as a radical political agitator endeared him to his base, and isolated him from the mainstream, essentially since its 2016 primary fight against Hillary Clinton. But Sanders has enjoyed a surge in support in the polls since returning to the election in October after suffering a heart attack.
He stands at 19 percent, on average, the last national polls, second only to Biden.
More importantly, in the kickoff caucus state, Iowa, is he at 20 percent in the current polling slightly behind Buttigieg. And in New Hampshire, he is on the field at 19 percent of the current average of the public polls.
Sanders is one of the leading in the decisive dash for campaign cash. He pulled in a whopping $28 million in July-September the third quarter of fundraising – more than any other democratic candidate – and raised more this cycle than any of his rivals for the nomination. At the beginning of last month, the populist senator, the presses, the ultra-progressive policy touted that he has reached 4 million donors.

And Sanders is stops drawing large crowds at many of his campaign, including a huge beach-rally in Venice Beach last weekend, where an estimated appeared to 14,000 people, to see him, and one of his leading surrogates – progressive freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-New York.
Figaro put a prediction that Sanders would go “all the way to the Convention” – means where a tight race could be a rare, hotly contested nomination.
“It’s a long season, so you can fasten your seat belt only,” Figaro, the party establishment has said.
CHAOTIC PRIMARY CONTESTED 2020 DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION COULD LEAD
Sanders returned Friday to New Hampshire, the state that launched him into a nationally known politician. Once a long-shot, Sanders crushed the former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton in the state’s 2016 Democratic presidential primary, encouraging him in a marathon battle with the party, the possible candidates.
At his first stop in the granite state, he got the recommendation from one of the state’s top progressive officials — Executive Council Andru Volinsky. The 2020 candidate for the Governor of the Sanders campaign legal adviser in New Hampshire in the year of 2016 was and served as Sanders, delegates said at the nominating convention in Philadelphia.
Volinsky Fox News said that this time around, “I kicked the tires with a series of campaigns in the state. There are a number of very, very, very, very good.”
But he stressed that, “although I spent time with a number of other campaigns, I always come back to Sanders, and I think this is where I belong, and I am pleased and honored to support Sanders for President.”
Sanders’ rise in the past two months is likely to invite more scrutiny, however.
While fellow progressive champion Sen. Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and Buttigieg much enemy fire took at the recent primary debates, Sanders largely avoided the fight.
Democratic operative Michael Ceraso, a veteran of the Sanders’ 2016 White house bid, doubts as to whether the senator really in dispute, in the year 2020.
“We need to recognize, Bernie still has the same challenges that he will face in 2016: higher unfavorables among [the voters over 50] it can kill, in the early primary and caucus States and the Super Tuesday. He can break through with older voters, which makes up around 50 percent of the vote? I’m skeptical,” he said.
Ceraso, who served as Buttigieg New Hampshire state Director before parting ways with the campaign last summer, said: “this is problematic for his candidacy, because he can’t win delegates to win the nomination, if he is not able to break through with older voters.
“Then he has to hedge his bets that his primary opponents are not in the form of a voter-coalition that can compete shared with his grip on the young and non-college educated voters and the democratic electorate to their decisions. That is a lot of what-if.”
