Viewers can watch the Bernie Sanders rally from Laramie, Wyoming, live online and see what could end up being his victory speech for the Wisconsin primary.
While voters in the Badger State are casting their ballots for the Democratic nomination, Sanders will be nearly a thousand miles away with his supporters at the University of Wyoming. It could end up being a monumental day for Sanders, who once trailed Clinton by double-digit margins among Wisconsin polls but held a consistent lead in the final week before the vote.

If Sanders does win on Tuesday, it could be a critical move toward his bid to upset the frontrunner, Hillary Clinton. Sanders still has the momentum of a string of wins in a row, including a sweep of caucuses in Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii that pulled him even closer to Clinton’s delegate lead.
The road ahead will be more difficult for Bernie Sanders, but he could have some strong momentum on his side. Seth Abramson, an assistant professor of English at University of New Hampshire and a fervent supporter of Sanders, wrote in the Huffington Post that Hillary Clinton is starting to lose some of her major demographics toward Sanders.
“There simply is no evidence available to suggest that Hillary Clinton’s robust coalition of nonwhite voters still exists — certainly not in anything like the form it was just four weeks ago. How else to explain an 82-point margin among nonwhite voters in Alabama, and similar margins in every other Southern state, on March 1st, and just a 6-point lead among all Southern Democrats (who are, depending upon the state, between 27 percent and 71 percent African-American) on March 26th?”
As he has been building the momentum, Sanders has been pushing his campaign as representing the future of the Democratic Party.
“We have received over six million individual campaign contributions averaging 27 dollars apiece — I believe that is the future of the Democratic Party,” Sanders said this week at a rally in Milwaukee (via ABC News).
Sanders has also been selling himself as the strongest candidate to face likely Republican candidate Donald Trump in November.
“We have got to do everything in our power to make sure that Donald Trump or some other Republican does not become president of the United States,” he said. “I happen to believe, based on all of the polling I have seen, and on other factors, that I am the strongest candidate to defeat Donald Trump.”
Sanders potentially gained even more momentum this week with the release of the Panama Papers, which were millions of documents related to wealthy individuals and corporations who are using illegal tax havens in Panama. It was an issue Sanders warned about in 2011 when he spoke out against a proposed trade agreement with Panama.

In an address to the Senate, Sanders presciently warned that Panama could be ripe for those looking to avoid taxes.
“Panama’s entire annual economic output is only $26.7 billion a year, or about two-tenths of one percent of the U.S. economy. No-one can legitimately make the claim that approving this free trade agreement will significantly increase American jobs.”
“Then, why would we be considering a stand-alone free trade agreement with this country?”
“Well, it turns out that Panama is a world leader when it comes to allowing wealthy Americans and large corporations to evade U.S. taxes by stashing their cash in off-shore tax havens. And, the Panama Free Trade Agreement would make this bad situation much worse.”
