'Bearnie Sanders' releases campaign video from NH

The Associated Press

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.
