Bernie Saners wins re-electoin as Burlington's Mayor in 1983

This week on The Ticket: Bernie Sanders has been one of the biggest surprises of the 2016 Presidential campaign. But those who know the Vermont Senator’s history aren’t surprised at all. The Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott will go back in time to hear from Burlington Vermont Mayor Bernie Sanders. The two will also talk with UT-Austin pollster Jim Henson about what’s behind the Sanders Surge.  And we’ll hear a report on how the closure of several driver licenses offices could affect minority voter turnout in Alabama.
