On Monday, March 14 Bernie Sanders held a rally at The Family Arena in Saint Charles, MO. Sanders is a democratic presidential candidate as well as current Senator of Vermont. The doors to the event opened at 4:30 p.m. and Sanders was scheduled to speak at 7:30. Many lined up hours before the event in order to get in quickly. Some sold tee shirts and pins in the parking lot to the people waiting in the line. Campaign volunteers also carried petitions for several of the political issues Sanders is trying to solve. There were approximately 5,500 people in attendance.
