FILE - In this Monday, March 6, 2017, file photo, Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez speaks at a protest against President Donald Trump's new travel ban order in Lafayette Square outside the White House, in Washington. "That's actually really important considering what happened past year", said Cynthia Busch, chairwoman of the Broward Democratic Party.

We can't bring out about the changes - health care for all, making public colleges and universities tuition-free, transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel - unless we have the guts to point the finger at the ruling class of this country, the billionaire class and Wall Street, and say, "Your greed is destroying this country". Sanders is in a tour of Republican states in an attempt to energize Democratic voters.

Other confirmed attendees are Texas Democrats chairman Gilberto Hinojosa, Tarrant County Democratic Party chairwoman Deborah Peoples and Dallas County Democratic Party chairman Carol Donovan.

"No, I'm an Independent", Sanders said when asked by MSNBC's Chris Hayes whether he now identifies as a Democrat.

He called for living wages, protecting Planned Parenthood, fighting income inequality and a single-payer health care system.

Meanwhile, Sanders said he believed Trump understood he needed to work with China to rein in the North Korean nuclear threat.

Sean Potter, a Sanders supporter and musician from Falmouth, said he was curious to hear from Sanders, whom he noted "kind of got shafted by" the Democratic Party. During an interview with ABC News before the rally Tuesday night, he proudly said he was "the longest-serving independent senator in USA history".

"The Democrats need a serious wake-up call", Ingoglia said. He curses about Republicans from the podium; praises Sanders often; and has so far stuck considerably to the left of the political center.

But an unexpected moment occurred at the Portland, Maine rally when Senator Sanders' spirited speech inspired a bit of extra spirited commentary from the engaged audience.

All of this means the political machine being created by the Independent Vermont senator (still not a registered Democrat) could become a strong underpinning if he decides, at age 78, to undertake a second presidential bid in 2020.

Sanders spoke directly to Kentuckians about the Republican's healthcare plan that was voted down by congress.

"Kentuckians have roundly rejected the ultra-liberal, anti-jobs platform of coastal elites like Sanders and Perez", Watson said in a statement.
