Wozniak, who co-founded the tech giant with the late Steve Jobs, urged followers to support the Vermont senator's campaign, using “#FeelTheBern,” the signature hashtag of Sanders backers.

Sanders is an independent but caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate. He is also running for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

Clinton remains atop recent polls, but Sanders has gained ground since announcing his run.

Wozniak has donated to both sides in recent presidential elections but has leaned more toward Democrats. He donated a little more than $3,000 to president Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008. He donated a few hundred dollars to Republican Ron Paul during the 2012 contest.

In 2004, he donated $2,000 each to the campaigns of John KerryJohn Forbes KerryDemocrats have reason to worry after the last presidential debate Overnight Energy: Farmers say EPA reneged on ethanol deal | EPA scrubs senators' quotes from controversial ethanol announcement | Perry unsure if he'll comply with subpoena | John Kerry criticizes lack of climate talk at debate John Kerry calls out lack of climate questions at debate MORE, the eventual Democratic nominee, and Howard Dean, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
