Bernie Sanders rallies supporters at the University of Houston.
Chants of "Feel the Bern" and "Green New Deal" blasted through the Fertitta Center on the University of Houston campus Sunday as thousands of people came out to hear presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders speak. The Democratic primary frontrunner talked about major themes of his platform including raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, gun control reform and legalization of marijuana. Indie rocker Soccer Mommy entertained the crowd before actor Kendrick Sampson rallied for the progressive cause prior to Senator Sanders taking the stage. (Photos by Jack Gorman)
