The candidate DESERT Pines High School 021520

Presidential hopeful and favourite Bernie Sanders rolled into Las Vegas for the Nevada Democratic Caucus. A standing room only audience listened and cheered as the candidate presented his views on healthcare, immigration, education, the war on drugs, and the rich among others.
