Will Ferrell And These Other Celebrities Are Feeling The Bern

He was among 128 celebrities who endorsed Sanders on Friday.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Lil B and comedian Will Ferrell are all feeling the bern.

All three were included on a list of 128 celebrities that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced had endorsed him on Friday. The list also included screenwriter Adam McKay, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and actor Jeremy Piven.

"As artists and citizens we believe it is time for government to once again represent the people and not just big money," McKay said in a statement sent by Sanders campaign. "Bernie Sanders is the only candidate speaking against the wide spread legalized corruption that has handed our government to billionaires, large corporations and banks.”

Sanders has surged ahead of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire poll averages by more than 10 percentage points, according to HuffPost Pollster. Several Iowa polls have put Sanders ahead of Clinton. Polls this early in a presidential contest are not always indicators of the final outcome.
