Watch: Bernie Sanders Draws Biggest Crowd of Any 2016 Candidate to Date

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders drew the largest gathering thus far for any of the 2016 candidates, packing in 19,000 people in the Portland, OR basketball arena, and a reported 9,000 additional people listening outside of the arena via loudspeakers.

Sanders, who hopes to take out the heavily-favored Hillary Clinton for the Democratic bid, said during his speech, “Portland, you have done it better than anyone else.”
