Old Hitlery Gets Berned: Sanders Rally Nearly Double the Size of Her Announcement Crowd

Bernie Sanders

By Bridget Johnson at PJ Media

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) upstaged ‘em all at a rally in Madison, Wis., on Wednesday night.

In fact, he put the number of people who showed up for Hillary Clinton’s official campaign announcement to shame.

Sanders nearly filled the Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Alliant Energy Center, which seats 10,231 people; the Associated Press put a 10,000 estimate on the crowd. About 5,500 people were on New York’s Roosevelt Island for Clinton’s carefully orchestrated launch.

“Tonight we have made a little bit of history,” Sanders told the crowd with a simple blue Bernie banner backdrop. “Tonight, we have more people at a meeting for a candidate for president of the United States than any other candidate.”

“This campaign is not about Bernie Sanders. It is not about Hillary Clinton or anybody else. It is about you. It is about putting together a grassroots movement of millions of people to make sure the government works for all of us and not a handful of wealthy campaign contributors.”

His speech proposed a $1 trillion infrastructure investment, single-payer healthcare for all, free four-year college for all, 12 weeks of paid baby leave for new mothers and fathers, and a massive jobs program to hire young people.

Sanders told the crowd their job is “to redistribute wealth back into the hands of working families.”

Supporters made #Madison a trending topic on Twitter, as well as the hashtag #FeelTheBern.

Tonight. Changes. Everything. #Madison #Bernie2016
