  1. Super! These leaders know an honest, authentic, intelligent, experienced true leader also! Thank you for endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders for president of the United States!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all Maine endorsers of Sen. Bernie Sanders for President. He is a true statesman with unsurpassed integrity and a clear vision of what is needed to bring about the best for our country and its citizens.

    I love what your’re doing but PLEASE don’t use the term “hope and change”. It was beaten to death in the Obama campaign. How about “So that we can look to the future with optimism and enthusiasm for a better America.”?

    • It’s great to see so many seated representatives in Maine endorse Senator Sanders. I am running for U.S. Senate in California and am the founder of #Candidates4Bernie. I ask every candidate endorsing Bernie Sanders and all citizens to campaign strongly and loudly to #StopTPP, rollback #CISA, #AuditTheFed and break up #TooBigToFail banks. – Steve Stokes
