Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is holding his kickoff rally in Vermont Tuesday, hoping to capture the support of progressives seeking an alternative to Hillary Clinton.

But he doesn't have the backing of a group close to home -- his own state's congressional delegation.

Fellow Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT) endorsed Hillary Clinton back in April on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports."

And Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin endorsed Clinton last week.

The state's sole congressman, Peter Welch (D-VT), is undecided, his office tells NBC News.

Indeed, 29 of out the 44 sitting Democratic senators (66%) have already endorsed Clinton in some form or fashion, according to NBC's endorsement count.
