The Democratic Socialists of America is officially supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president.

The group, which says it is the “largest and fastest growing socialist organization in the U.S.,” made the announcement in a tweet on Thursday night.

“Democratic Socialists of America is proud to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president!” the tweet said. “We’re building a mass movement to take on the billionaires and win a society that puts people over profit. Join us.”

The DSA had also endorsed Sanders’ primary bid in 2016, The Hill noted.

“Sanders is the only Democratic Socialist running for president in 2020, and the only socialist in American history with a serious chance of winning the presidency,” the DSA said in a statement, according to Fox News.  “Sanders’s platform — Green New Deal, Medicare for All, College for All, ending cash bail, strengthening unions, and a living wage — would transform American society by ending the worst forms of poverty and inequality while empowering workers to fight for even more.”
