But no one should forget the historic campaign waged by Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sanders came remarkably close to becoming the democratic nominee.

After suspending his campaign, Sanders began to work on a COVID-19 response, joining Seth Myers to speak on Medicare for All: a progra...

Republicans, on the other hand, are either outright can...
