Bernie Sanders Now Officially On Indiana Ballot

Phil Roeder

Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is now officially a candidate for president in the Hoosier State.

Supporters delivered 7,000 signatures to the Indiana State House yesterday, putting Sanders' name on the ballot for the May 3 primary.

The chair for his campaign in Indiana, Aaron Robinson, says as the election gets closer, there’ll be bigger crowds in the state out to support the Vermont senator – but he wouldn’t utter Hillary Clinton’s name when talking about Sanders’ second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

“The opposing candidate was the heavy favorite and we got to a draw in the early state,” Robinson says. “And I think that, for us, is a win.”

Sanders and Clinton split the Iowa vote nearly evenly on Monday.
