Bernie Sanders to Stump for Clinton in Maine

Nov 1, 2016

PORTLAND, Maine — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is coming back to Maine to stump for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The independent senator will rally for the candidate who beat him in the Democratic primary. He is scheduled to appear at Deering High School in Portland on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

Sanders appeared in Bangor to urge voters to support Clinton on Oct. 7. He also attracted large crowds to Portland when he was seeking the nomination. Deering High school was one of the sites of the Maine caucus.

A recent poll says Clinton has extended her lead in Maine. However, Maine is one of two states that portions out electoral votes by congressional district. Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are polling very close in the more conservative 2nd Congressional District.
