US Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has announced that he is throwing his hat into the camp pain for the Democratic nomination for president.

Sanders says folks should not underestimate him. The Democratic socialist is a long shot who will bring attention to left-wing issues. He is a 73-year old populist, who is technically, a Democrat. Sanders is the first challenger to Clinton, but he's not going to be the last.

Other possible candidates include former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb and former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee.
