Bernie Sanders kept up with the pace of his own momentum today as part of his three day tour of Iowa, meeting a crowd of 700 in Grinnell.

Seeking to capitalize on the new optimism following the positive Iowa poll, showing a 7-point gap between Sanders and Clinton, Sanders spoke to over 700 voters in the town of Grinnell.

In his speech, he spoke about the opening of the new campaign HQ in Ottumwa, commended the Iowan caucus system, and described the advances the campaign had made in the recent months, applauding the grassroots organizers in Iowa and across the country for their contributions.

Prior to the speech event, Sanders took part in taping of the Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press”, which will air over the weekend.

Sanders will stay on the move in Iowa over the next few days, visiting the town of Burlington tonight, and heading to Cedar Rapids tomorrow.
