WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) congratulated Vermont Olympians who are competing in Sochi, Russia. The Winter Sports Spectacular begins Friday.

“Vermont has a long tradition of excellence in winter sports that we owe partly to our state's cold climate and mountainous terrain, but also to an outdoor spirit that dates back generations. I would like to acknowledge these athletes individually and wish them the best of luck in pursuing the gold,” Sanders said.
