Bernie Sanders Made Jewish History, Yet No One Seems To Be KvellingBreaking News
tags: election 2016, Bernie Sanders
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is already a historic figure. He is the first Jewish candidate to win delegates in a presidential primary or caucus -- in fact, the first non-Christian presidential candidate to win a delegate. Come Tuesday, he is likely to be the first Jewish candidate to win a presidential primary election.
But Sanders' faith is approached almost as an afterthought -- a biographical addendum that neither he nor his supporters find worth discussing.
"It's a guiding principle in my life -- absolutely it is," Sanders said at a Democratic forum in Derry, New Hampshire, on Wednesday night. But, he added, "everybody practices religion in a different way."
