As the candidates took the stage at the debates in Atlanta, Georgia, Bernie Sanders supporters held a watch party tonight in downtown Erie at the Bourbon Barrel.
The group is part of a nationwide cadre of watch parties, which are loosely organized through the Bernie Sanders campaign. One debate watcher we spoke to tonight is still not committed to a candidate.
“He certainly speaks to a lot of the issues that are important to me,” said Paige Bosnyak, a debate watcher. “But, I guess I didn’t really realize the connection to Bernie Sanders, but he is one of my favorites.”
