Over 10,000 people came out to see Sen. Bernie Sanders speak at Michigan State University’s Breslin Center Wednesday evening. Lines to get into the building wrapped around the Breslin Center, braving the bitter cold several hours before Sanders took to the podium at 7 p.m.
The crowd was composed mostly of young adults. A few hundred attendees stood on the floor, roughly 10,000 filled the surrounding lower-bowl seats and some even caught the speech from the upper level.
Michigan’s primary election is Tuesday March 8. Sanders concluded his speech by asking all those in attendance to march to the polls next Tuesday.
