Bernie Sanders Votes For The Best Candidate Running In The 2016 Democratic Primary Race: Himself
On Super Tuesday, the crucial primary race that has 13 states and American Samoa deciding which candidates they want to see on the ballots in November, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders headed to a Vermont polling station to cast his vote.
After taking a selfie with a fan, Senator Sanders said: “I will tell you after a lot of thought, I voted for me for president.”
Amidst chuckles from onlookers, the man Sanders posed in the photo with slapped him on the back and laughed, before saying: “Congratulations, Bernie. Good luck out there.”
According to Politico:
The Democratic presidential candidate and his wife, Jane Sanders, cast their votes at a polling station in Burlington around 7:30 a.m., according to a pool report. “Nice warm day,” a woman at the local community center where Sanders voted joked (it was about 12 degrees outside). “Nice Vermont day.” The couple voted at booths beside each other and took pictures with voters afterward. Sanders briefly spoke to reporters inside the community center, telling the press, “We’re feeling great.” He is expected to win Vermont handily — recent polls show him with more than 80 percent support. But the state is just one of 11 that are voting in the Democratic primary Tuesday, along with American Samoa.
