FOX NEWS – FRED LUCAS
When Carina Driscoll announced she was running for mayor of Burlington – the local Vermont office her stepfather Bernie Sanders once held – she was determined to be her own candidate. But the Sanders family ties have loomed large in the race, for better or worse.
On one hand, her campaign hopes to capitalize on the popularity of the state’s independent senator, with one ad calling her “Bernie’s daughter.” But another family connection could prove more problematic. With the election coming up next month, Driscoll’s candidacy has been hit with controversy over payments her business once received from the college her mother used to run.
