Last Saturday, more than 18,000 people packed the convention center in Denver to hear the Senator lay out his agenda for restoring our middle class, giving hope to the millions who are trying to keep their heads above water.

According to the Denver Post, Saturday's events "showcased" the differences in campaign styles. "Clinton's campaign hosted a small event that featured party leaders and teary families affected by gun violence" while Sanders had a huge rally a few hours later.

A SuperTuesday state, Colorado holds a caucus on March 1st with 79 delegates at stake.

On Sunday, using a bullhorn, Sanders spoke to 300 people, unable to get into Bonanza High School in Las Vegas, before he entered the gymnasium filled to capacity with 1,700 supporters.
