Bernie Sanders has set a New Hampshire crowd record with nearly 2,000 people attending a rally in Keene on Sunday night.

It is the biggest crowd of any candidate on the Democratic side in New Hampshire this cycle. Sanders had previously set the same record in Cedar Rapids, just before the Iowa caucuses.

The crowd beats out the 1,800 in attendance at a Buttigieg event in Nashua earlier in the day.

The Keene rally was a concert, featuring bands Twiddle and Sunflower Bean. Actor Tim Robbins and campaign co-chair Nina Turner also spoke at the rally.

“If we have the highest voter turnout in New Hampshire primary history we will win here in New Hampshire,” Sanders told the energized crowd.

Sanders is holding a series of events across New Hampshire prior to the state’s first in the nation primary on Tuesday, including a concert rally with The Strokes in Durham on Monday night.

The Vermont Senator has consistently led in Granite State polling.
