During a rally in Portland, Maine, Bernie Sanders mentioned Phish, a well-known jam band that hails from 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.”

Jon Fishman endorsed Bernie Sanders and made a video about why he likes the candidate. He says he has been a Bernie supporter for a long time. He and Phish bassist Mike Gordon campaigned for Bernie in 2006, during his run for the Senate.
