Bernie Sanders Now Officially On Indiana Ballot

Feb 3, 2016

Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is now officially a candidate for president in the Hoosier State.

Supporters delivered 7,000 signatures to the Indiana State House yesterday, putting Sanders' name on the ballot for the May 3 primary.

The chair for his campaign in Indiana, Aaron Robinson, says as the election gets closer, there’ll be bigger crowds in the state out to support the Vermont senator – but he wouldn’t utter Hillary Clinton’s name when talking about Sanders’ second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

Former Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) served as one of the organizers of a non-partisan political  convention held Monday in Manchester, New Hampshire.

The former Democratic senator and governor is on the advisory board for No Labels, a group formed in 2010 to promote ways that Washington politicians can find common ground.

Mitch Daniels has tried to make his time as Purdue President about student affordability – so this month in our regular conversation with him, we ask about the plans from three people who’d also like to be president – of the United States.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the former Republican governor doesn’t have rave reviews for education savings plans from the top three contenders for the 2016 Democratic nomination.

The next Democratic presidential nominee could be the oldest in the party’s history. Democrats have only nominated one non-incumbent over 60 since 1880, but frontrunner Hillary Clinton turns 68 this year  and Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) turns 74 in September. 

Both candidates would set the record for the party’s oldest nominee, and Sanders would be the oldest first-term nominee in U.S. history.
