    1. Didn’t brave the rain to attend this rally, but listened to Bernie live on KGUN 9 via FB. He’s rallied up the crowd, urging the 1000 or so people to vote and get others to vote for David Garcia as well.Looked like a good mix of students and community members. Go vote on 11/6/18. And it’s still raining today…

      UPDATE: here the video of the rally today:
