Bernie Sanders campaigns on Santa Monica Pier

(AP) -

Bernie Sanders is looking for votes on the Santa Monica Pier, even taking his grandchildren for a ride on the pier's carousel.

Sanders shook hands and stopped for photos during a stroll of more than an hour Sunday along the shops, restaurants and amusement park rides of the California landmark.

The Vermont senator reminded voters about the state's California primary, urging them to vote.

Sanders stopped by a charity "Pedal on the Pier" fundraiser, telling people riding on stationary bikes that the U.S. should have "an economy that works for all people, not just the one percent."

Sanders and his wife, Jane, wrapped up the excursion by standing alongside grandchildren Dylan and Ella Driscoll as the kids sat atop horses and rode on the Santa Monica Carousel.
