Bernie Sanders Holds Rally in New York City With Spike Lee and Rosario Dawson

The New York primary is in full swing, and Sen. Bernie Sanders drew thousands of supporters outside Saint Mary’s Park in the South Bronx for a rally tonight.

“What we are saying loudly and clearly is enough is enough,” the Democratic presidential candidate from Vermont told the crowd.

Before the event began, supporters were hawking merchandise with the phrases “Feel the Bern” and “Bern Baby Bern” emblazoned on it like vendors outside a sporting event. Director Spike Lee and actress Rosario Dawson spoke at the rally.

Luis Quiros, of Mamaroneck, was among the many Sanders supporters at the Bronx rally. He said being there reminded him of protesting the Vietnam war back in the early 1970s.

“I feel I belong here. We should be concerned about the millennial and younger” generation, Quiros said.

The rally is a mere 30 miles from the Chappaqua home of Hillary Clinton, his Democratic primary opponent.

Earlier on Thursday, Clinton ​stopped by Horace Greeley High School before her rally at Purchase College.
