'Bearnie Sanders' releases campaign video from NH

Maybe he should consider changing his name to Bearnie.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign has released a video of his first official campaign stop - a brief swing through New Hampshire - and at one point he poses with a stuffed bear.
The clip shows Sanders petting the bear and joking: "I personally captured this bear. Tamed it all myself. That's what a good presidential candidate does."
The self-described "democratic socialist" formally entered the race last week to offer a robust liberal alternative to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
He made his stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, last weekend.
