The Vermont senator raised more than any Democrat in the last quarter capping a stunning bounceback from a heart attack
Shortly after Bernie Sanders announced early this month that his campaign raised a showstopping $34.5m the highest sum of any 2020 Democrat during any single quarter so far in this primary #PresidentSanders was trending on Twitter.
It was an extraordinary reversal of fortunes for a presidential candidate who, three months earlier, was in a Las Vegas hospital recovering from a heart attack. At the time, Sanders was under immense political pressure, eclipsed by fellow progressive Elizabeth Warren and counted out by many in the party and by the president.
The episode might have derailed Sanders second quest for the White House had it not been for his army of loyal supporters, whose abiding faith turned the Vermont senator into a formidable contender for the Democratic nomination.
With less than four weeks until voting begins and the next debate looming on Tuesday, Sanders is surging in Iowa and New Hampshire as his campaign touts new signs of growth in his support, particularly among young people of color.
Even Larry David, the comedian who impersonates Sanders with striking likeness on Saturday Night Live, has been surprised by his doppelgangers resilience.
I thought when he had the heart attack that was going to be it I wouldnt have to fly in from Los Angeles, David told late night host Stephen Colbert. But, you know, hes indestructible. Nothing stops this man.
Perhaps, but Sanders would not be where he is in the final weeks before the Iowa caucuses without the unwavering support of a devoted community that he has cultivated since running for president in 2016. Not me. Us, Sanders campaign slogan perfectly captures how the 78-year-old senator came to sit atop the latest Des Moines Register and CNN poll of Iowa caucus-goers in a primary contest that has so far been shaped by candidates who are younger, more diverse and newer to national politics.
