Sanders and Warren headlined a rally at the Tivoli on the Auraria Campus.

He and Warren claim Clinton’s plan will raise minimum wage, move the country to sustainable energy and make public college tuition free. They also told the crowd that Democrats need their vote to defeat and beat Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump calls African Americans thugs, Muslims terrorists, Latino criminals and brags about sexually assaulting women,” said Warren.

They criticized Trump’s character and then reminded voters to do just that… vote.
