His Facebook page shows that he was a fan of Vermont Sen.
Several Sanders supporters in the Quad-Cities said Wednesday that they did not recall ever seeing Hodgkinson.
Mark Longabaugh, who worked on Sanders' presidential campaign, said the senator struck the right tone in his comments after the shooting, avoiding finger-pointing and not arguing for any legislative action.
The trace is part of an ongoing federal investigation into suspected shooter James Hodgkinson, who allegedly opened fire on GOP lawmakers at a ballpark in Alexandria early Wednesday morning as they practiced for an annual charity baseball game.
Sanders said on the floor of the Senate Wednesday that "I am sickened by this despicable act". Let me be as clear as I can be.

He said residents had complained for years to Kensington and Chelsea Council about the building's safety, to no avail. She told the Press Association: "People were starting to appear at the windows, frantically banging and screaming".
Hodgkinson was a licensed home inspector in IL, according to public records, but his license lapsed last November.
Hodgkinson left a litany of anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts on the timelines of his Facebook and Twitter accounts, and he joined several Facebook groups with names such as "The Road to Hell is Paved with Republicans" and "Terminate the Republican Party".
In a statement, Capitol Police said Griner was in "good condition in the hospital, having been shot in the ankle". Some things that get reported by the media will later turn out to be wrong.
On Facebook in 2015, Hodgkinson made at least one comment about the Republican congressman he is accused of eventually attacking in person.
None of that stopped some conservatives from concluding that Hodgkinson was aiming to injure Republicans specifically, and that he was driven by a liberal culture that glorifies violence against GOPers. Donald Trump Jr., the son of the president, retweeted Hill's comment - adding "This."

The deal also prompted Irish premier Enda Kenny to warn that such an alliance could upset Northern Ireland's fragile peace. Until she does, she and her ministers are on borrowed time .
Hodgkinson apparently wrote many letters to the editor of his local newspaper, the Belleville News-Democrat, which published almost two dozen of them between 2010 and 2012. Social media and campaigns have pitted people against each other, painting them with broad brushes that result in pictures that are caricatures barely resembling real life. The shooting injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, congressional staff and Capitol Police - all of whom are expected to recover.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, echoed Davis' sentiment. "He is just a member of congress that is just as friendly, you know, we get along here - we may have our differences". McAuliffe is in a state with some of the most lax gun regulations in the country.
Hodgkinson is believed to have been armed with a rifle, reportedly asking people if the baseball practice was being held by Democrats or Republicans.
President Obama defended doing so after Newtown: "Are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?" It just took me by surprise when I saw on the news today that he did what he did. For example, his public Facebook posts date back to 2012 and are almost all about his support for leftist politics. "He was, I guess, exhausted of some of the politics going on".
