Bernie Sanders’ Son Loses NH Congressional Primary

Levi Sanders, son of failed presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), was handily defeated on Tuesday night in his bid for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, a perennial swing district vacated by retiring Rep. Carol Shea-Porter.

Sanders was viewed as a significant underdo, and also ran without the endorsement of his father, who said in a statement this summer: “Levi has spent his life in public service to low-income and working families, and I am very proud of all that he has done. In our family, however, we do not believe in dynastic politics. Levi is running his own campaign in his own way.”
