Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders hosted a rally Sunday night in Dubuque at Loras College.

The rally was originally scheduled to happen in the Fieldhouse at Loras, but had to be moved to a location with more room because of the mounting numbers of RSVP's. 

To some, this was a very impressive feat.

"I think it shows that people are listening and that they are fed up," Lesley Cameron of Decorah said.

Sanders covered a range of topics, including healthcare reform, income inequality and college debt.

"We have got to ask ourselves, how does it happen, that millions of Americans today, some young, some not so young, are saddled, are being crushed, by outrageous student loan debt," Sanders said.

At the end of the rally, Sanders asked that everyone join him in his campaign.

"I ask you to join me in making a political revolution in our country," he concluded.

Altogether, 2,000 people attended the meeting.
