we were 25ago, points behind in the polls. we have made some real progress. a little while ago, i called up secretary clinton and congratulated her and her staff for their victory here in nevada. they ran a very aggressive, and effective campaign. i applaud them for their efforts. [applause] what this entire campaign has been about is the issue of momentum, the issue of bringing more and more people into the political process. when we began in iowa we were 50 point behind. in new hampshire, we were 30
point behind. we were way behind here in nevada. ist i think is happening that as people hear our message, it speaks to the truth of an american society today. have a campaign finance system that is undermining american democracy. [applause] we will not allow billionaires and their super pac's to elections in the united states of america. the american people are catching on that we have a rigged
economy. people, people, working working two to three jobs, longer and longer hours. and all new income going to the top 1%. together, we want to create an economy that works for all of us and not just the top 1%. the american people are catching broken we have a criminal justice system. if a kid in nevada gets picked up with an ounce of marijuana, that kid will have a police record it stays with him his entire life.
if you are a wall street executive, and your behavior destroys the lives of billions of people, somehow nothing happens to you. [booing] bring justice back to the system.
