New Hampshire State Rep. changes mind about endorsement after listening to Bernie Sanders’s life story, endorses him

Vermont’s Independent Senator Bernie Sanders is making the campaign more personal this time, arguing that his life story demonstrates that he has a lifelong commitment to the issues he is talking about.

This strategy appeared to pay off a little bit for Sanders this week, as a New Hampshire State Representative who had previously said he was going to wait until the first debate to endorse anyone decided to get behind Sanders.

Adjutant specifically cited elements of Sanders’s life story, and explained that he had no idea that Sanders was descended from survivors of the Holocaust or that he was involved in the civil rights movement. Sanders rarely referenced these details in 2016, but most of his super-fans certainly knew them. This example shows that Sanders himself telling his story may reach a far broader audience.
