Meet Levi Sanders, son of Sen. Bernard Sanders, Vermont independent and self-described socialist. It is very likely that Mr. Sanders the younger is going to run for Congress in New Hampshire, specifically, the 1st District — an area that encompasses Manchester, the state’s largest city, plus the coastline and the ever-popular Lakes Region.

“Oh absolutely, I’m definitely considering it. I’m excited, motivated and interested in the race,” Mr. Sanders told Vice News. “I’m just dotting my i’s and crossing my t’s.”

The potential hopeful is 48 and considered to be a carpetbagger of sorts in the Granite State, as he lives in the 2nd District, not the 1st. Mr. Sanders said his campaign platform will be similar to his father’s and include Medicare for all and free college tuition, among other things.

“The basic difference is that I’m a vegetarian and he’s not,” the son said of his father.

Should he jump in the race to replace retiring incumbent Democrat Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, he’ll join an already crowded field of 11 hopefuls that includes one Libertarian, three Republicans and seven Democrats.
