Former Ohio Senator Stumps In Maine For Bernie Sanders

Pete Buttigieg's campaign wasn't the only Democratic presidential one to target Maine Thursday.  Former Ohio Sen. Nina Turner addressed crowds in Portland on behalf of Bernie Sanders.  Turner touted Sander's support for a living wage, action against climate change, campaign finance reform, and Medicare for all.  

"If we can go to the moon, we can have health care for all," Turner said. "No more excuses."

She noted Sander's success in the state during the 2016 presidential primary as an indicator of support in the coming year.
