'Bet on Bernie': Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016 Theme Goes Viral on Social Media for Contribution Pledge Campaign

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 20, 2015) - Since the 'socialist underdog' Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders had begun voicing his possible run of presidency last year the questions have continued to circulate to when Sanders will surface with a 2016 presidential bid.

Yesterday Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told Fox News Sunday host "My decision will be made real soon" and further commented, "I would not run unless I knew I could win" when asked about his feelings about running against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In spite of Sanders' dislike for billionaire capitalists that are said to dictate many of the federal elections through super PACs, Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016, an independent super PAC was publicly acknowledged in February, in addition to being mentioned in Bloomberg Politics article 'Bernie Sanders Hates Campaign Cash, the Very Thing He'll Need to Beat Hillary Clinton' on March 26.

Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016 chief director Cary Peterson (35) told Bloomberg reporters in March that the committee is 'receiving contribution pledges.' Nonetheless, Peterson announced this morning the themed 'Bet on Bernie' pledge contribution website is active, accepting contributions and pledges for cash contributions in the event Bernie Sanders makes a 2016 presidential bid.

"I think social media plays a big role with our pursuit and will enable us to meet our immediate goal for contribution pledges to foot the bill for our campaign and marketing partners, who are at the table," comments Peterson.

Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016 currently has social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus, and is an active participant in voter and veteran rights awareness events held by non-partisan organizations and independent political parties that are supporters of presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders.
