Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has decided when he will decide if he will run for president: by March. 

In an interview with Dave Gram of the Associated Press, Sanders said he’d make a “gut decision” about running, and whether he'd seek the Democratic nomination or run as an independent.  “I don’t want to do it unless I can do it well,” Sanders told the AP. “I don’t want to do it unless we can win this thing.” Sanders said he has a 12-step plan that would focus on higher taxes for the wealthy and corporations, pro-worker international trade deals, and strengthening unions. The 75-year-old added that his health is “good.”
