CONCORD — Hundreds of supporters packed the Grappone Center on Sunday for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ first rally in New Hampshire since launching his second bid for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President.
Sanders, an independent from Vermont, spoke for nearly an hour. His fiery speech featured many familiar themes from his 2016 campaign, which helped lead him to victory in the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire Presidential Primary three years ago.
“All of you will remember, in 2016 this is where the political revolution took off. Thank you, New Hampshire,” Sanders told the crowd.
Sanders noted he is no longer widely viewed as the “radical” challenging the establishment. After more than two years under President Donald Trump, Sanders believes more Americans agree with his visions on health care, the environment and economics, to name a few.
