Colorado

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. That evening, both spoke at a Democratic Party dinner and fundraiser. Of course, Clinton has the support of Colorado's Democratic Party hierarchy.

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

Nevada

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.

The Nevada caucus will be held this Saturday but polling is very difficult in the state, especially in and around Las Vegas, because the area suffered from so many foreclosures. Nevertheless, Sanders is experiencing success in bringing caucus goers to his side.

A Clinton gaffe has undermined her support. In looking ahead to a possible tie with Bernie, she did not want a picture to emerge that she had lost the Latino and black vote -- supposedly her strongest constituencies -- so she put the fabrication out there for public consumption that "Nevada is 80% white." Understandably, this has been viewed as an insult by those same constituencies.
