More than 20,000 pack St. Paul, Duluth venues for Bernie Sanders events


ST. PAUL -- Bernie Sanders hit on all the progressive high notes Tuesday during a two-stop mini-tour of Minnesota.

The Vermont senator drew crowds of more than 6,000 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center Arena in the afternoon, while more than 4,500 were diverted to overflow viewing on top of the 10,000 admitted to the St. Paul RiverCentre during the nightcap of his visit.

With a large part of the crowd in St. Paul looking like this voting season would be their first, Student Farhiya Ali of St. Paul’s Hamline University warmed up thousands who waited in line as early as five hours before the event with her story of why she would be voting for Sanders in the March 1 caucus.
