It will also help start both of their 2018 reelection campaigns on a strong note. And David Hopkins, a political science professor at Boston College, told the Globe that Sanders’ 2016 presidential bid challenging Hillary Clinton could serve as a template for Warren if she decides to run in 2020.

“If she does run, she would likely pattern her presidential campaign after Sanders’ 2016 candidacy and seek to inherit the faction of Democrats who supported Sanders last year,” he said, calling the Vermont socialist a “kindred spirit in the Senate” for Warren.

Erin O’Brien, chairwoman of the political science department at the University of Massachusetts Boston, added, “The guy, who is not even a Democrat, is being treated like a rock star in deep-blue Kennedy Massachusetts, and it’s because he is a rock star.”

Friday night’s rally is organized by Our Revolution, the political action organization that spun off of Sanders’ presidential bid, as well as Raise Up Massachusetts, a coalition of grassroots groups that has advocated for higher minimum wage and paid sick leave.
