Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont easily won his state’s Democratic primary on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press, all but guaranteeing his re-election in November. But Mr. Sanders is expected to snub the party that he sought to represent in the 2016 presidential election: A self-described democratic socialist, he plans to reject the nomination and run instead as an independent, according to advisers.
Mr. Sanders followed this course in his Senate races in 2006 and 2012. By winning the Democratic nomination, he effectively prevented the party from putting another name on the November ballot, and many Democratic leaders and voters supported him in November elections regardless of him not running on the party line.
The article goes on to state the following:
In other major primaries Tuesday, Democrats in Connecticut nominated Ned Lamont for governor. Mr. Lamont, who made his name defeating former Senator Joseph I. Lieberman in the 2006 primary, will face one of five Republicans vying for the governorship in a year when the G.O.P. has a chance to run competitively in an otherwise liberal state because of the unpopularity of the outgoing governor, Dannel Malloy.
