Troy Jackson introduced Sen. Bernie Sanders to a crowd of over 8,000 people in Portland, Maine last July. It was the “summer of Sanders.” As the candidate took the stage, he said solemnly to the exuberant crowd, “In case you didn’t notice, this is a big turnout.”
“It was pretty clear where I stood then,” Jackson told OpenSecrets Blog months later. However, by that time, Jackson wasn’t just endorsing Sanders; the Maine logger and former state legislator was working for him.
When it comes time to cast his vote as a superdelegate to the Democratic Convention in July, there’s not much doubt where he’ll come down.
