Senator Bernie Sanders campaigns in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Senator Bernie Sanders held a rally at Indiana University- Purdue University in Fort Wayne on Monday afternoon.

A little more than 3,000 people came to IPFW to watch the Vermont senator speak.

Sanders’ main points were raising minimum wage, free college tuition, health care and global warming.

“I’m running for president because we have a global crisis in term of climate change,” Sanders said.

He also focused on paid medical leave.

“Moms and dad should have the right to stay home with their newborn babies,” Sanders said. “If I’m president we’ll have three months of paid family leave.”

Sanders also blasted Carrier and United Technologies for leaving the state and taking jobs to Mexico.

“What you are doing is wrong, it’s immoral and you better change that policy,” Sanders said.

He is the third presidential candidate to stop in Fort Wayne. Ted Cruz held a rally Thursday and on Monday. Donald Trump had a rally Sunday afternoon.

Bill Clinton also came to Fort Wayne to campaign for his wife, Hillary Clinton.

Hoosiers go to the polls Tuesday for the presidential primary.
