Thousands Rally for Sanders Days Before Iowa Caucus

A massive crowd of 15,000 people came out to hear the democratic hopeful speak.

The Vermont Senator, known for the massive crowds he has drawn all over the country during his campaign, walked on stage in St. Paul holding his wife Jane’s hand. When he arrived at the podium he pumped his fist and shook his head, as though humbled and shocked by the sight of the crowd.

“My god, what a turnout,” he said as the room cheered and chanted his name.

Right off the bat, though, the progressive superstar tried to take the focus away from himself. “Yes, this is an election for the presidency of the United States, and I am here to ask for your support, but... no president, not Bernie Sanders or anyone else, can effectively address the crisis facing our country unless there is a political revolution.”
