Maybe I'm isolated from the world but do hillary voters exist?
IOWA CITY — At the University of Iowa tonight massive crowds of students gathered to hear Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders speak and to listen to the popular #millennial band Vampire Weekend. Organizers for the event list the number of attendees officially at 3802. The Fire Marshal at the event confirmed to Independent Journal that approximately 500 were turned away.
The crowd happily sang along and cheered for headlining band Vampire Weekend. But it was the 74-year-old senator from Vermont who proved to be the night's main event.
As he ascended to a raised platform in the middle of the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd, Sanders was greeted by deafening cheers and chants of "Bernie! Bernie! Bernie!" Many of the concertgoers had waited outside for hours to snag a spot on the field house floor.
"Whoa," Sanders said. "There's a lot of people here."
The concert, which ended with a rendition of "This Land Is Your Land," capped off a day of campaign efforts aimed at translating Sanders' large crowd counts and enthusiasm into votes on Monday night.
