PoliticusUSA shot exclusive video of the crowd as Bernie Sanders announced that he had made history and attracted the biggest crowd of any 2016 presidential candidate.
Sanders said, “Tonight we have made a little bit of history. Tonight, we have more people at a meeting for a candidate for president of the United States than any other candidate …Thank you.”
The Sanders campaign has confirmed that the crowd was a record by quoting the Associated Press estimate of 10,000 attendees. PoliticusUSA can independently confirm that there were 10,000 people inside the event and scores more who had to listen to Sen. Sanders speak on speakers that were set up outside of the venue.
Sanders received 13,000 RSVPs for his event, and he nearly doubled the previous high for any 2016 presidential candidate.
Anyone who didn’t believe that the candidacy of Bernie Sanders was for real was given a 10,000 person reality check in Madison.
