Bernie Sanders plans large Aug. 9 rally in Portland

I love the stark contrast between these two events. It really says it all.

Bernie Sanders plans large Aug. 9 rally in Portland
July 31, 2015 * The Oregonian * By Jeff Mapes

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has been attracting large crowds to his presidential campaign appearances around the country, has scheduled a Sunday, Aug. 9 rally at the Memorial Coliseum in Portland.

The Sanders rally at Memorial Coliseum -- which has a capacity of more than 12,000 -- is set to begin at 7 p.m., with the doors opening at 6 p.m., according to an announcement posted Friday on the Sanders campaign website.

There is no charge listed for the event, which says he will discuss issues ranging from climate change to dealing "with obscene wealth and income inequality."

Sanders, an Independent who aligns with the Democratic Party in the Senate and identifies himself as a socialist, has been attracting the largest crowds of the new presidential campaign season. In early July, about 7,500 showed up for an event in Portland, Maine, according to a Time Magazine account of his large crowds.

Sanders will appear in Portland just four days after Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential race, is set to hold a $2,700-per-person fundraiser at a home in the exclusive Dunthorpe neighborhood on the Portland border.

1. I'm going to try and make it to Bernie's rally.

Hopefully I can swing some time off for it.

Go Bernie!

2. Let's make this big! Perhaps we'll see a scene like this on a future episode of Portlandia!
