Berniecrats is a term used for those democrats running for office who have expressed support of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.[1]

Background

The website berniecrats.net maintains a list "of individuals who endorse Bernie Sanders and are active candidates for a public office."

A disclaimer at the Berniecrat website explains:

At this point, there is no commonly agreed upon definition of a "Berniecrat." We err on the side of inclusion vs. exclusion, and do our best to confirm that the candidates on this list do/did in fact support Bernie in some way. They may support Hillary now (but so does Bernie), but as long as there is evidence of their support, that's fine. Please note that some are more hard-core supporters, while others may just lean in that direction. Before contributing to anyone, please check them out for yourself. If you see someone who is obviously not a Bernie supporter, please let us know!

Candidates

The below names are of pro-Bernie Sanders socialists who ran for office. Some won their primaries and some lost. They are all relevant as socialist political players in their respective states.
