VATICAN CITY Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders heads to the Vatican on Friday, saying he would be happy to meet the Pope but denying his lightning transatlantic trip is a bid to woo Catholic voters. The Brooklyn-born son of Polish Jewish immigrants has said the trip is not a political tactic but a testament to his admiration for Pope Francis and the pontiff's views on social and economic inequality in the world. Sanders is expected to speak on the better distribution of global resources, the need for health care equality, and climate change, all tenets of his campaign stump speeches.
