As the crowds continue to grow for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, admitted socialist and candidate for the Democrat nomination for 2016, reputed Democrat front runner Hillary Clinton is making as if she isn’t worried over the Vermonters’ growing popularity.
During a Friday campaign stop in New Hampshire, a reporter quizzed Clinton on her impression of the massive crowds that have been coming out to hear Sanders speak.
“We each run our own campaigns and I always knew this was going to be competitive,” Clinton replied.
She continued saying, “I want to have a great debate in the primary and caucus around the country and that is what I am looking forward to.”
The sizes of Sanders’ crowds have been growing by leaps and bounds. At a rally held in Madison, Wisconsin at the end of June, for instance, Hillary struggled to fill seats. But only days later at Madison’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Sanders had a massive crowd of over 10,000.
The growing size of Sanders’ crowds is sending shock waves through the Democrat Party.
