Bernie Sanders, the candidate whose politics are most outside the mainstream, belongs to a group that has 43 chapters chapters nationwide. This group is the Democratic Socialists. For the younger crowd, there’s a specific group just for them: The Young Democratic Socialists. There are 24 chapters across the nation at high schools and colleges, including Michigan State University. The organization started in the early 2000s and was brought back to MSU’s campus this January.
