Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders held two massive rallies in California over the weekend; addressing thousands of supporters just days before voters head to the polls for the pivotal Super Tuesday showdown.
“More than a third of all delegates are on the line Tuesday, with 14 states and American Samoa holding primaries. Of the roughly 1,350 delegates up for grabs, 415 are from California, which is why Sanders’ campaign is hoping left-wing enthusiasm there can carry them to a big win,” reports Fox News.
