Bernie Sanders Taps Phish Drummer & Wife for Maine Super Tuesday Co-Chair

In a new statement from the Bernie Sanders campaign, Phish drummer Jon Fishman and his wife Briar Lyons have been chosen as Super Tuesday co-chairs for the state of Maine. In the statement, Northeast campaign spokesperson Rosemary Boeglin was quoted as saying, “working with local leaders like Jonathan Fishman of Phish-fame allows us to engage with different communities in creative ways to involve everyone in the political process.”

Fishman was also quoted in the statement saying “Bernie has been fighting his entire career spanning over 40 years for education, climate change, local and small agriculture, removing big money from politics, health care and human rights. He has been consistent, truthful and persistent. We have confidence that he will set the board for success with regard to these concerns by calling on citizens, appointing professional individuals and building teams with the goal of bringing the globe together to combat these issues.”
