In front of a large crowd, Sanders spoke about helping the middle class as the wealth gap continues to widen across the country.

The membership of the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers, also known as the UE, has endorsed Sanders’ candidacy.

Senator Sanders drove the point home during his speech. The UE is the union that represents many of the workers at the Wabtec plant in Erie.

A new poll from Monmouth University shows a virtual three way tie in the Democratic nomination race.
