Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at Amazon on Wednesday. (Twitter Photo / @danielbslater) It’s been three weeks since the presidential election and months since the primary, but many “Feel the Bern” bumper stickers and signs are still proudly displayed around Seattle. Today, Sen. Bernie Sanders visited the city where he remains a progressive icon for many of its liberal residents.
Sanders’ first stop in Seattle, believe it or not, was Amazon’s downtown headquarters. The Vermont senator is promoting his new book, Our Revolution , which chronicles his experiences on the campaign trail.
This evening, Sanders is speaking at the University Temple United Methodist Church — a location that’s feels a little more “Bernie” than the meeting room at a big corporation.
The University Temple event is sold out and the Amazon stop drew a big crowd of employees eager to hear what the former presidential hopeful had to say.
Here are some reactions from the crowd at Amazon’s meeting center:
