Thousands of Seattleites stood in a line that looped from KeyArena, around the International Fountain, and all the way to the Space Needle in the far southeast corner of Seattle Center on Sunday afternoon, to gain a chance to see Democratic presidential hopeful, Senator Bernie Sanders rally the voters for next Saturday’s Washington State Caucus.
In Seattle, Sanders addressed a crowd estimated at 5,500 people outside of an arena where he spoke to a crowd of more than 10,000 people inside the arena, offering his prescriptions to rebuild the middle class.
“Please come out Saturday morning,” Sanders implored one of his audiences here, referencing the start time of the Washington caucuses. “Bring your friends, your neighbors, your uncles, your aunts.”
The KeyArena event is available on YouTube.
