Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders wins Vermont Democratic nod

Folasade Adeluola, a self-described "Obamacrat activist" challenging Vermont Sen.

As he did in his two previous campaigns for U.S. Senate, Sanders has indicated he will turn down the nomination so he can run as an independent instead of a Democrat.

"The Vermont Democratic Party has a strong, productive and close relationship with Senator Sanders", party spokesman Christopher Di Mezzo said in an email.

Although she favors similar policy proposals as the self-described Democratic socialist Sanders, Adeluola has accused the 76-year-old senator of being "corrupted" after spending nearly four decades in elected office. She is already listed as an independent on the November ballot.

And Vermont Democrats are okay with Sanders not taking the nomination, as they had been in 2006 and 2012.

Those, however, not using a Pixel or Essential phone will have to wait for the Android 9 update to hit their devices. After the Android Pie final release, a second bug report was opened and a lot more people started chiming in.

It remains unlikely that Adeluola's complaint will be successful since Vermont's Democratic secretary of state Jim Condos backed Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign.

There are four Republican still vying to face Sanders in November.

H. Brook Paige is a one of Vermont's perennial candidates who, over the years, has run for a number of statewide offices. He argues the state needs to "find a pathway back to the values of self-determination and community for all".
