“I’m thinking about the civil rights movement, and people marching to the polls. Well, we’re fighting to change America.”

Sanders then led supporters on a walk to the nearby student union, which is a polling place ,to encourage them to cast their votes on the last day of early voting for the Feb. 22 Nevada caucuses. Read more
