South Hero - US Senator Bernie Sanders, the tribune of working people, has bought his third house for nearly $600 000.

Fresh off the presidential campaign trail, the self-described Democratic socialist bought a seasonal waterfront home on Lake Champlain in North Hero, Vermont, for $575 000.

A Sanders spokesperson says the senator and his wife Jane also own a row house in Washington, DC, and a home in Burlington, Vermont.

Jane O'Meara Sanders says her family recently let go of a home they had owned in Maine, enabling her and her husband to buy the place in the Lake Champlain islands.
