  1. ^ a b Tuesday, October 3, 1972, Bernard Sanders, 31, after losing the Senate race, runs for governor in 1972 under the Liberty Union banner. At a debate with his two major-party rivals at Johnson State College, Sanders wins repeated applause from a crowd of 350 students as he attacks the Republican and the Democratic candidates for governor. He accuses the GOP of a welfare policy that would make poor people "eat dirt" and chides both parties for not advocating stiff taxation of corporations in Vermont.
