PORTLAND, Maine - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is planning to host a rally in Portland Wednesday. According to the Sanders campaign, the Vermont senator will appear at the State Theatre, in the city's downtown.
In an interview Monday with MPBN's Fred Bever, Sanders said he is contesting Maine "very strongly," and plans to remain in the race "to the end. We think we have an excellent chance to win Maine and we look forward to seeing our friends there."
In July, Sanders drew about 7,000 people to a rally at Portland's Cross Insurance Arena.
