( – In a new bombshell announcement concerning Congress, far-left Senator Bernie Sanders, who is 82-years-old, has declared in a video address that he would not be retiring but would instead run for yet another six-year term in the US Senate.

Sanders, who represents Vermont as an Independent but caucuses with the Democrats, announced on Monday in a post on X his intention to run for another term.

He expressed his gratitude to the people of Vermont for the opportunity to serve in the U.S. Senate.

“Let me thank the people of Vermont, from the bottom of my heart, for giving me the opportunity to serve in the United States Senate. It has been the honor of my life,” the senator wrote.

“Today, I am announcing my intention to seek another term,” he added.

By the conclusion of his potential fourth term in January 2031, Sanders would be 89 years old, assuming he secures re-election, Breitbart News reports.

In the video where he made his announcement, Sanders made a case for several key policy changes.

These include legislating Roe v. Wade as national law to make abortion universally accessible, ensuring tuition-free access to all public colleges and universities, and opposing financial support for Israel in its conflict with Hamas.

The candidate registration period for Vermont’s primaries, scheduled for August 13, began in late April and will close on May 30.

Sanders, a prominent figure in the progressive movement nationwide, previously secured the Democratic nomination in 2018 with 94% of the vote, subsequently winning the general election against Republican Lawrence Zupan and several third-party candidates.

Gerald Malloy, a Republican combat veteran who ran for Senate in 2022, is also contesting this election cycle.

In his previous campaign, Malloy aimed to fill the seat vacated by former Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) but was defeated by Senator Peter Welch (D-VT) by a significant margin of 40 points.

First elected during the 2006 midterm elections, Sanders has been a formidable progressive voice.

His presidential campaigns in 2016 and 2020 both saw him finishing as the runner-up. In the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, Sanders was second to Hillary Clinton, who secured 2,811 delegates against Sanders’ 1,879, benefiting notably from the support of super delegates.

Similarly, in the 2020 primaries, Sanders earned 1,119 delegates, finishing behind Joe Biden’s 2,739 delegates.
