(In 1996 Sanders won re-election with 56 percent.) UE members in Vermont contributed their time and gave their votes to keep the only independent in Congress; UE Political Action Dir. Chris Townsend worked on the campaign in its closing days. At left, Sanders delivers his victory speech on Nov. 3. Pictured with him are his daughter Carina and wife Jane.
