In his first Portland appearance since March of 2016 as a presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders addressed a full house at State Theatre last night. This was the kick-off of a nationwide tour with DNC chairman Tom Perez. The crowd was absolutely rockin' when Bernie walked out on stage as seen in this video. 

According to a new poll, Bernie Sanders has the highest approval rating of any US senator.  According to the energy level displayed at the State Theatre last night, Bernie is still a Rock Star to lots of folks in Maine. He beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Maine caucuses. Watch this 2 minute video until the end when an audience member shouts "F 'em" and see Bernie's cool response.
