PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Former Rep. Barney Frank and the drummer of the band Phish are going to speak on behalf of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders at the Maine Democratic Party’s convention.

The former Massachusetts congressman will serve as a surrogate for the former secretary of state while Phish’s Jon Fishman will speak on behalf of the senator from Vermont, both on Saturday. Former Maine State Sen. Troy Jackson also will speak in favor of Sanders.

Frank was a Democratic congressman from Massachusetts from 1981 to 2013. Fishman is the namesake of the longstanding jam band from Sanders’ home state.

Saturday is the second day of the Maine Democrats’ convention. State delegates will elect Maine’s delegation to the party’s July national convention.
