Bernie Sanders, without naming Clinton, drew sharp distinctions between himself and the former secretary of state.
Sanders said that if his support continues, he can pull off one of the great political upsets in U.S. history.
“From coast to coast, the American people are crying out for change, for real change,” Sanders said. “They are tired of the same old, same old establishment politics, establishment economics and establishment foreign policy. They want this county to move in a new direction.”
Sanders said that as he travels the country and draws thousands of people – including many political newcomers — to his rallies, “I see a future not just for my candidacy but also for the Democratic Party.
“I believe the campaign we are running is a campaign that not only regains the White House but takes the Democratic Party in a huge step forward into the future.”
“We are running a campaign which calls for real change” Sanders said. “We are running a campaign which calls for a political revolution and tonight I ask all of you to join in that revolution.”
