I'm confused, did Bernie get elected or not?

Yeah he did get elected, but I doubt he'll run in 2016

I sort of regret not getting rid of him when he lost his seat in 1994, but he may run in 2020, depending on how things go.

MCAIN-FRANKEN BILL SIGNED BY PRESIDENT

 

Today, President Obama signed the Political Fairness Act into law. The Act covers many different points, but one of the major ones is the fact that the Commission on Presidential Debates is now part of the federal government, with its new chair saying that the 2016 election will have the 15% threshold for debates scrapped. This is following the Libertarian Party, Green Party, and Reform Party staging major protests in favor the new rules.

Election 2016:

Barack Obama, the incumbent president, is constitutionally eligible to run for a second full term, and he is intent on running again. The President is popular in his own party, with the only two challengers touted being Elizabeth Warren, who has yet to make up her mind, but has the backing of popular progressives such as Senator Bernie Sanders, the former host of the Bernie Sanders Show podcast, and Al Franken, who has pushed for campaign reform.

 

The Republican side is diverse, with Jeb Bush fast becoming Harold Stassen, conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Pence, and Jim Gilmore.

 

But there's one other thing. Governor Donald Trump, who won re-election as an independent in 2014, has announced his intention to run as an independent. He looks certain to shake up the race, with a right wing populist agenda, a far cry from his time in the Reform Party.
