Phish drummer Jon Fishman appeared with Sanders at a rally in Maine.
Bernie Sanders may have only won four states to Hillary Clinton’s seven on Super Tuesday, but he may have locked down a very particular fan base when he went back on the campaign trail Wednesday with Phish drummer Jon Fishman.
Appearing at a rally in Portland, Maine, Sanders spoke about the jam band from his home state Vermont. “Let me thank, I guess, one of Vermont’s heroes who is now transplanted, Jon Fishman. Jon and Phish have made New England proud. They are one of the great bands, have been one of the great bands in this country.”
Fishman recently released a video urging fans to vote for Sanders, who he’s supported since moving to Burlington when the now-Senator became the mayor. Fishman and Phish bassist Mike Gordon also campaigned for the Democratic presidential candidate back in 2006, when Sanders ran for Senate.
