Nigerian-American Folasade Adeluola who went head to head against one of America’s most popular politicians, Bernie Sanders, was easily defeated on Tuesday.

Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders won Vermont’s Democratic Senate primary but was expected to turn down the nomination, as he did in his previous campaigns, and support other Democratic candidates, Time reported.

In Tuesday’s Democratic balloting, Sanders defeated little-known candidate Folasade Adeluola.

Adeluola has said said she believes Vermont needs a full-time senator and accused Sanders of dividing the party with his insurgent run against Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“I did not like the way Sen. Sanders caused the DNC to lose the White House,” Adeluola told the Burlington Free Press. “That is why I’m angry.” The paper reported that Adeluola, like Sanders, is registered as an independent candidate and plans to carry on through the November election.

Local media said Adeluola, now a Shelburne resident, moved to Vermont after the 2016 presidential election with the specific goal of unseating Senator Sanders. But her dreams did not become reality on Tuesday night.

Time said “Sanders, long one of Vermont’s most popular politicians, is thought to be considering a presidential run in 2020 and already is on Vermont’s November ballot as an independent”.

There were four little-known candidates seeking the Republican U.S. Senate nomination.
