Bernie Sanders’ upcoming rally in Portland garnered so many RSVPs, it has moved to a bigger venue.

The candidate for the Democratic nomination for president will hold his Sunday event in the Moda Center instead of the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The candidate’s campaign is said to be picking up nationally.

Sanders’ platform includes fighting climate change and making college educations more affordable, along with “getting big money out of politics” and “dealing with obscene wealth and income inequality.”

Sanders campaign workers predicted the move earlier this week when it was obvious the far-left candidate’s message resonated in Portland.

Sanders’ website doesn’t list the total number of people who have signed up, but a since-deleted tweet said 9,000 people RSVP’d for the Rose Quarter rally within the first 48 hours of its announcement.

The rally is scheduled to begin at 6 pm on Sunday. RSVP quickly.

This New York Times story says Sanders and Hilary Clinton are “in a dead heat” for the nomination.

Will fervent support at free rallies in liberal cities translate to widespread support at the polls?
