Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders has lined up veteran Democratic campaign strategist Tad Devine for a prospective 2016 presidential campaign, theWashington Postreported on Tuesday morning. “I believe he could deliver an enormously powerful message the country is waiting to hear right now and do it in a way that succeeds,” Devine, a former senior adviser to the Kerry-Edwards and Gore-Lieberman campaigns, told the Post’s Robert Costa.Tapping Devine is the latest sign that Sanders is serious about exploring a run, and not averse to the attention that comes with being seen as a presidential contender.
