On the US campaign trail with the Democrat 'socialist'

Bernie Sanders challenges Hillary Clinton for nomination with calls for government-funded jobs and free education.

    United States Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is increasingly being viewed as a threat to front-runner Hillary Clinton.

    The self-described socialist is calling for free higher education and more government-funded jobs.

    Supporters of the Vermont senator see him as more of a populist leader than Clinton, who they view as a candidate backed by wealthy corporations.
