VIDEO | Sanders to raucous crowd: 'We have made history'
Bernie Sanders is thanking his delegates at a meeting before the Democratic National Convention, saying "make no mistake about it, we have made history."
Sanders addressed over a thousand delegates packed into a ballroom at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, in advance of the Democratic National Convention. Many of his supporters— frustrated by the primary process and the recent leaked emails from Democratic party officials — have been threatening protests at the DNC.
To wild cheers, Sanders said his candidacy proved that "the American people want a bold progressive agenda that takes on the billionaire class."
