Federal Officeholders

Progressives elected to Federal office

Senator Bernie Sanders

The Vermont Progressive Party was formed out of the coalition that worked to elect Bernie Sanders to the Mayor's office in 1981. Though an Independent, Bernie has long worked with the Progressive Party to promote the issues that matter to working- and middle-class Vermonters. He is the longest serving Independent in Congress, and in 2006 became the first Independent ever elected to the US Senate from Vermont.
