How Presidential Candidates Pay for College: Bernie Sanders Used a Mix of Loans, Earnings and Savings

When it came to paying for college, it was a family affair in Bernie Sanders’ household. The Democratic candidate took on a share of the costs, but so did each of his four children–Levi, Heather, Carina and David.

Each of his children, now ages 39 to 46, took out student loans and worked during school, breaks and summer vacations, according to campaign aide Michael Briggs. David, for instance, worked at Burton Snowboards throughout his time at the University of Vermont, while Carina was a resident adviser at the University of Montana.
