Levi Sanders, son of Vermont Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, is coming under attack because he doesn’t even live close to the 1st Congressional District where he is an announced Democratic candidate. Mr. Sanders resides in Claremont, NH, which is near the Vermont border in the southwestern part of the state. New Hampshire’s 1st District covers the eastern portion of the Granite State.
Though he just received a new public endorsement, it probably won’t help Mr. Sanders too much. Yesterday, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) announced his support of Levi Sanders, in part to repay the support Bernie Sanders gave him in the 2017 gubernatorial election. But, backing from another state’s Governor won’t do much to quell the attacks against him having much local support.
