2020 Election: Celebrities who support Bernie Sanders

With the 2020 election getting close and closer, serious White House contenders are continuing to voice their political stance. 

Bernie Sanders, who has served as the junior United States Senator from Vermont since 2007, ranks high amongst the Democratic hopefuls -- competing with Kamala Harris,  Joe Biden, Peter Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O'Rourke and Cory Booker.

Sander's first ran in the 2016 election, ultimately losing to Hilary Clinton in the Democratic nomination.

Slate recently called Sanders "a fiery leftist who has a substantial, if not primary-majority-size, base of committed supporters. " 

The 78-year-old's "committed supporters" include an abundance of high-profile people such as Miley Cyrus, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover, Brandi Carlile and more. Back in 2016, Sanders gained national attention for his celebrity endorsements from Spike Lee, Seth McFarlane and Will Ferrell. 

Perhaps, one of Sanders' most unexpected supporter is Cardi B. Just last August, the presidential hopeful sat down with the Grammy-winning rapper for an interview about politics, minimum wage and health care. Following the viral interview, Poltico.com analyzed their conversation with the headline "Cardi B might be one of Bernie's most powerful 2020 allies. Seriously."
