Viewers can watch the Bernie Sanders rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, live online and see what could be a pivotal moment for the Sanders campaign.
After a string of important victories in caucuses in Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii this weekend, Sanders is looking for a strong performance in Wisconsin in order to continue his momentum and keep his hopes of catching Hillary Clinton alive.
Previous rallies have shown that Wisconsin could be very receptive to Sanders’ message. He drew tens of thousands to a rally in Madison over the weekend, spreading the message that he will be the strongest candidate to face off against Donald Trump in November.
Viewers can now watch the Bernie Sanders rally in Milwaukee at the video below. It is scheduled to start Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
Although many pundits have seen Wisconsin as a difficult win for Bernie Sanders, the New Yorker noted that it could actually be a very favorable demographic.
“The next vote is scheduled for Tuesday, April 5th, in Wisconsin, where Sanders has a decent chance of coming out ahead. The polls are close, he’s been drawing big crowds, eighty-eight per cent of the population is white, and Wisconsin has a strong radical tradition. On the other hand, the Clinton campaign has also targeted the state, and it has the support of many labor unions, which have been battling Governor Scott Walker for years. Even if Sanders does prevail, the result is likely to be close, which means the ninety-six delegates will probably be split fairly evenly. Clinton’s lead is likely to remain largely intact.”
The Wisconsin primary will be followed by a contest in New York, where Hillary Clinton has held a large lead in polls. A win in Wisconsin would likely not be enough to blunt the losses from New York, but it could help generate some momentum that swings the result more in his favor.
And at this point, momentum is just as important to the Sanders campaign as the delegate count. He has expressed hopes that superdelegates would see the potential of his campaign, an argument that would not require him to necessarily pass her in pledged delegates but instead get close enough to allow superdelegates to jump over to his side without appearing to go against the will of voters.
“We have won five of the six last contests in landslide fashion,” Sanders said on NBC’s Meet the Press (via USA Today). “I think a lot of the superdelegates are now beginning to look at which Democratic candidate is the best place to defeat Donald Trump. I think some of them are beginning to understand that it’s Bernie Sanders.”

Viewers who watch the Bernie Sanders rally from Milwaukee live online could see him continue to make that case and also continue to press Hillary Clinton on the upcoming primary in New York. Recently, he has been calling on Clinton to debate him in New York, although Clinton has been quiet about the idea.
“I would hope very much that as we go into New York State, Secretary Clinton’s home state, that we will have a debate — New York City, upstate, whatever — on the important issue facing New York and in fact the country,” he said (via USA Today).
