Part II: The Mavericks: Bernie Sanders, Rand Paul, and Lincoln Chafee
A series by Miriam Raftery, Devoreo Bell and Juwan Armstrong
August 8, 2015 – the 2016 run for the White House includes some maverick candidates outside the traditional political track. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was an independent and avowed democratic socialist before declaring his run for the presidency as a Democrat. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is a Libertarian-leaning Republican on some issues, though not all, following in the footsteps of his Libertarian-turned-Republican father, former presidential candidate Ron Paul. Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee was a liberal Republican before changing parties to run as a Democrat for the presidency.
