Bernie Sanders in Clinton country

Bernie Sanders in Clinton country

Massachusetts is Hillary Clinton country.

Except for Senator Elizabeth Warren, who coyly tweets sweet comments about Clinton rival Bernie Sanders but has yet to formally endorse in the 2016 presidential race.

And then there’s the band of local legislative supporters behind Sanders as the Vermont senator takes on Clinton and the Democratic establishment.

This weekend, the Sanders campaign plans to formally open a Massachusetts headquarters in Charlestown, with backing from state Senator Jamie Eldridge, an Acton Democrat, and a few other legislators: state Senator Pat Jehlen of Somerville; state Senator Dan Wolf of Harwich; and state Representatives Mary Keefe of Worcester and Paul Mark of Peru in Western Massachusetts

That contrasts with the list of 190 Massachusetts endorsements Clinton released in December. Her “Massachusetts Leadership Council” includes Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, US Senator Edward Markey, state Attorney General Maura Healey, all nine Massachusetts US representatives, and 23 state senators.
