Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was in the Minneapolis Sunday, and thousands of people turned out to the event where he addressed income inequality and the need for political reform in Washington.
The Minneapolis American Indian Center was packed and people gathered outside to listen to what the Vermont Senator had to say during his roughly 45-minute speech.
