Sanders announcement revives criticism from Clinton backers

WASHINGTON (AP) — The tension between supporters of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is resurfacing after the Vermont senator announced his second run for the White House.

One longtime Clinton aide, Philippe Reines, tweeted that the media had given Sanders a “WELCOME BACK!” reception despite his 2016 primary loss while telling Clinton to “go away.”

Sanders stunned the Democratic establishment in 2016 with his spirited challenge to Clinton. While she ultimately became the party’s nominee, his campaign helped lay the groundwork for the leftward lurch that has dominated Democratic politics during the Trump administration.
