After more than 40 years in politics and two failed presidential bids, it looks like Bernie Sanders is planning on sticking around Capitol Hill. The independent senator from Vermont is reportedly already jockeying for a position in a Biden administration.

Sanders is reportedly interested in pushing “progressive voices” and apparently has his sights set on the Labor Secretary position. Publicly, Sanders has not said anything about putting his name out there for a position. In the push toward Election Day, he has continued to show strong support for Democratic nominee Joe Biden. In a recent interview with Politico, Sanders said, “Right now I am focused on seeing that Biden is elected president; that’s what my main focus is.” Recently, Bernie has done a number of virtual events for the Biden campaign.

Sanders has always been a strong supporter of raising the minimum wage. He has also always supported measures that would make it easier for workers to organize.

The Biden Cabinet could turn out to be a rather interesting mix of individuals, as former Ohio Governor John Kasich and former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake are both reportedly being considered for positions. The two Republicans have both endorsed Biden, and there’s a good chance there is a Cabinet position waiting in exchange for those endorsements.

The Biden campaign continues to stick with the typical line of “not making any decisions until after the election.”
