Bernie Sanders Again Draws Crowds in N.H. Swing

Aug 2, 2015

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is back in the Granite State this weekend.

Saturday Sanders collected the endorsement of a major environmental Group, the Friends of the Earth, in Concord, before heading to town hall meetings in Manchester and Exeter. Sunday he’ll do three more town hall meetings in Rollinsford, Franklin and Claremont.

His early stops drew big crowds. “A lot has happened in three months,” he joked in Manchester, “Something happened on the way to a coronation.”

Sanders’ last visit was in late June, and since then the profile of his campaign has grown as thousands have flocked to hear his fiery denunciations of the super wealthy.

“You cannot hide billions of dollars in profits in tax havens like the Caymen Islands and Bermuda when we have enormous unmet needs in this country, you are going to pay your fair share in taxes,” he declared to cheers.

Following his last stop in Claremont, Sanders is returning home to Burlington, Vermont. Next he says his campaign is headed to the South.
