Sen. Bernie Sanders doesn’t think there’s “much question” he’s more progressive than former Vice President Joe Biden. “Joe voted for the war in Iraq, I led the effort against it. Joe voted for NAFTA and permanent trade relations, trade agreements with China. I led the effort against that. Joe voted for the deregulation of Wall Street, I voted against that,” Sanders said in a new ABC interview.  Before he officially hopped in the 2020 race, Biden suggested he’d be the “most progressive” candidate.  Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday said he doesn’t “think there’s much question” that he’s more progressive than Joe Biden in response to the former vice president’s claim he’s the “most progressive” candidate vying for the 2020 Democratic nomination. 

“I think if you look at Joe’s record and you look at my record, I don’t think there’s much question about who’s more progressive,” Sanders told ABC in an interview that aired Sunday. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
