GRAND PRAIRIE, TX – Voters who weren’t looking to win with Ben were feelin’ the Bern on Saturday.
Yeah, in stark contrast to Carson’s conservative crowd in Irving, a packed house filled the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie to rally behind Bernie Sanders, just in time for the March first primary.
“He speaks for everybody,” Sanders supporter Joshua Demmonds told NewsFix. “He speaks for all the normal people out there; we’re all behind him 100% to become the next president.”
“He’s got the answer in my opinion,” Sharon Holmes added.
“I believe in his universal healthcare policy, and renewable energy and I’m a woman and I believe he represents women’s rights,” Mindy Anderson said.
It was a busy day for Bernie; he trekked across Texas. He started his day in the heart of the lone star state — Austin. He rallied his supporters and urged them to get to the polls.
“If all of you come out to vote and you bring your friends and your neighbors and your coworkers, we are going to win here in Texas,” he told his crowd of over 10,000 supporters in Austin.
Sanders brought that same enthusiasm and message with him to North Texas.
“It looks like Dallas is ready for a political revolution,” Sanders told the crowd at Verizon Theater. “Turns out, it is one thing to have the support of the establishment; it is another thing to have the support of the people.”
It’s been a tight race between Sanders and Hillary Clinton, and Super Tuesday will no doubt be key for both campaigns as 11-states will hold primaries or caucus all at once.
The RCP Poll shows Clinton leads an average 47.2% over Sanders’ 42.2%.
We’ll just see how the votes add up after the polls close.
