Bernie Sanders Draws Massive Crowd

Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders packed the 10,000-seat Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Madison, WI last night.

While Wisconsin has supported Republican governor Scott Walker with his election, recall defense and re-election, Madison exists as a hardcore liberal domain. Sanders, the 73-year old junior senator from Vermont, describes himself as a “social democrat”. He officially ranks as an Independent in Vermont, but joined the presidential derby as a Democrat. Accordingly, he scored points with local liberals while referencing several issues linked to major in-state political battle points.

“When you deny the right of workers to come together in collective bargaining, that’s extremism,” Sanders said to an enthusiastic crowd.

Walker currently leads GOP polls, so Sanders’ appearance on Walker’s home turf provides political gamesmanship as the Democrats continue their attempts to re-gain a once solid-blue state.

Sanders offers an unabashed socialist message in comparison to Hillary Clinton’s moderate tones. Despite the ideological campaign tones, Sanders continues to gain on Clinton in Iowa polls.
