Sen. Bernie Sanders has no plans to change his status as an independent, according to a report on Fox News.

Sanders, who has accepted a position in Democratic Party leadership as outreach director, told the Christian Science Monitor that he was "elected as an independent, and I will finish this term as an independent."

Sanders ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary, but was elected for office in Vermont as an independent and has spent 26 years in Congress under that title. His decision to run as a Democrat against Clinton upset some of her supporters.

Sanders also told the Christian Science Monitor that it was time for some "soul-searching within the Democratic party" following the Republicans’ landslide win on Election Day.
