Sanders electrifies Sioux City

Senator Bernie Sanders spoke to a crowd of more than 1,000 in Sioux City, Iowa on Monday night, just a few days before Christmas.

At the Sioux City Convention Center, Sanders outlined his vision for America.

“What I want to do is be a president that works with millions and millions of people to transform this country and make it into the nation that you and I know that it can be,” he told the crowd.

“I will never stop talking about the needs of working families. I will never stop talking about poverty. I will never stop talking about being able to afford college. I will never stop talking about climate change. I will never stop talking about income and wealth inequality.”

Senator Sanders hit out at Secretary Clinton’s connections to Wall Street, after she was pressed on the matter at the ABC News debate over the weekend.

“Secretary Clinton was asked about Wall Street liking her. She said she wants to be liked by everybody,” he told the crowd.

“I understand wanting to be liked by everybody, but if we’re going to stand up to the greed of Wall Street and the greed of corporate America, I accept them not liking me.”

Sanders’ swing through Iowa comes as a new poll shows him in a statistical tie with Hillary Clinton in the Hawkeye State.

On Tuesday, Sanders will head to Storm Lake, Harlan and Council Bluffs. There are just 42 days until the Iowa caucuses get underway.
