Bernie Sanders in San Diego 

March 22, 2016 (San Diego) people started to form up at 7 in the morning. We walked the line and we estimated it at 15 thousand. We were given the actual figure by the campaign later on, and it was 13 thousand, between the main hall and the overflow room.

The rally is filled with screams of “Bernie,” and “I believe I can win”. There are also calls from Senator Bernie Sanders to reform local police departments, retaining the war on drugs and ending the militarization of police.

We also met with Reverend Shane Harris who met with the Senator before the rally. It was a fruitful discussion and Sanders  sees Harris as an important leader in our region.

We will have a much fuller story tomorrow. Sanders also said “we will stand as a nation with our allies.” We will crush ISIS. He is also calling for a coalition of allies in the Middle East, led by Muslims. He quoted King Abdullah of Jordan who said this is a battle for the soul of Islam.

Story updated to reflect the crowd number from the campaign.
