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 go back in time to hear from Sanders in his days as mayor of Burlington, Vt. The two also talk with UT-Austin pollster Jim Henson about what’s behind the Sanders surge.
