Megan R. Wilson, writes at The Hill, that:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) netted of $1,867.42 for two paid speeches and a television appearance last year, according to according to financial disclosure reports.
Not quite in the same league with his main opponent in the contest for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. Furthermore, Sanders whose minimum net worth of:
$169,025 in 2014, including at least $25,002 in credit card debt, according to recently released financial disclosure reports tallied by The Hill.
This would qualify him as “dead broke” in the Clinton Universe, and Sanders:
… gave the money to a charity, a non-profit called Northeast Kingdom Community Action that helps low-income families in Vermont.
Meanwhile, according to the headline over another story in The Hill, it
seems that Sanders is “moving fast to corner the market for a firebrand liberal alternative to Hillary Clinton in 2016 — complicating life for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.”
And while “Very few observers believe Sanders could truly endanger Clinton’s pursuit of the Democratic nomination.”
He “has a built-in constituency and a plainspoken style that is both unabashedly left-wing and authentic. He knows how to get attention on the campaign trail, and his message appeals to grassroots progressives and young liberals.”
