Mayor Bill de Blasio and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders rode the subway today, with riders in a packed but welcoming car calling out support for Sanders. Their destination was a press conference at the Fulton Street station voicing support for a “fair fares” initiative. They also appeared together tonight at a de Blasio campaign rally.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders returned to his childhood block today, holding a brief rally in front of his childhood home. Speaking to a crowd of several hundred in Midwood, with several hundred more in an overflow area, Sanders reminisced a bit but largely stuck to his established campaign themes.
It’s not just Trump land. Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have field offices in downtown Claremont, New Hampshire, which I happened upon ahead of Donald Trump’s rally Tuesday evening. Both storefront offices were quiet during my mid-afternoon visits, with three people working in the Sanders office and one in the Clinton office. I received a friendly, if slightly wary, reception in both. Sanders had the better art, with some eye-catching candidate-worship pieces while Clinton featured a life-size candidate photo/cutout. Clinton also had a donation basket for a local food bank. I didn’t see any other candidate offices in town.
Here are a few photo’s from each:
