Thousands come out to see Sanders in Rock Hill, SC

The independent Senator from Vermont drew thousands for a rally in Rock Hill, South Carolina on Saturday night.

Around 3,000 supporters attended the rally on the campus of Winthrop University on Saturday. The rally was initially scheduled to be held at the West Centre, but was moved to the Brynes Auditorium to accommodate a crowd larger than expected.

This is the Senator’s second swing through South Carolina, who is currently struggling to gain traction in the Palmetto State, though leading in Iowa and New Hampshire, other key states.

The campaign has also recently grown its staff in South Carolina, and is expected to focus heavily on the state over the coming months.
