Mainers make their cases for Bernie and Hillary

In this week’s episode of the Beacon podcast, Mike is joined by MPA lead organizer Gen Lysen and Maine Small Business Coalition director Will Ikard, who make strong cases for why you should vote and caucus for Sen. Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton, respectively, to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

You can cast your own vote for one of these candidates in the MPA straw poll by texting Sanders or Clinton to 207-466-0096.

Also, an important update on the minimum wage!
