Bernie Sanders stopped in Green Country to hold an event called "A Future to Believe in Tulsa Rally." 

Sanders fans were given the chance to “feel the Bern” Wednesday February 24 at the Cox Business Center, Event Hall C, 100 Civic Center, Tulsa. 

Around 7,000 people were expected to attend the Sanders rally but the Cox Convention Center can hold more than 9,000.

Prior to the event Sanders' campaign manager said he's excited to come and talk to the people about his main ideas. These include making college affordable and quote "getting big money out of politics.”

Sanders' supporters were excited to see the campaign trail pass through Tulsa.

After the event, Sanders stopped his motorcade to speak with his supporters that were not able to get inside the Cox Business Center. 

 

His speech for the overflow. I had just exited the rally and walked to the steps when the motorcade stopped and he jumped out like the gangster he is. #revolution
