Sen. Bernie Sanders reminded the media of why he is the real phenom of the 2016 presidential campaign by drawing a crowd of 20,000+ to a rally in Boston, MA.
According to the Sanders campaign:
Building a grassroots movement in this key Super Tuesday primary state, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Saturday was greeted by more than 20,000 cheering and chanting supporters at a rally inside the sprawling Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and in an overflow area outside.
“Boston, thank you. What a huge crowd,” Sanders said when he took the stage. “We are running a peoples campaign and while the millionaires and billionaires have something we don’t have we have something they don’t have. Look around this room,” Sanders said.
“Since we began this campaign, hundreds of thousands of people at meetings like this have come together to help us make a political revolution,” he added in the speech to the crowd that included supporters from next door New Hampshire, which will hold the nation’s first primary next Feb. 9, and from Massachusetts, one of 13 states which will hold primaries on March 1.
This is why the billionaires fear Bernie Sanders more than any other candidate. Sanders has a simple message that government should belong to the people, not the billionaires and corporations. The Sanders message is creating a movement to change American politics.
People are giving their time, money, and effort to Sen. Sanders because he represents real change. Sanders raised more money than any Republican candidate in the third quarter without a super PAC. Bernie Sanders won’t be courting the wealthy with million dollar fundraisers.
The Bernie Sanders campaign is a movement of the people, and the message delivered in Boston is that millions of Americans are coming to take their government back.
