    There were more than 1,200 people inside Great Bay Community College to hear Bernie Sanders speak - and in 50 minutes, that crowd erupted into boisterous cheering and applause 74 times.

    It's been Sanders' message from the start

    "Our government belongs to all of us, and not just a small number of wealthy people," he said.

    Sanders made a comedic campaign stop, appearing on Saturday Night Live, just hours before Hillary Clinton addressed the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

    "Hillary kind of ran away because Bernie's, I think, doing really well," one supporter said.

    Before wrapping up his rally with supporters, Sanders addressed his critics, who are attacking what they call a lack of foreign policy experience.

    "The most important foreign policy issue in the history of this country was the war in Iraq," he said. "I was right on that issue. Hillary Clinton was wrong."

    Nancy Roberts moved from her long-time home in Australia to become a New Hampshire resident in 2016. She and her husband support Sanders so strongly that they changed their original March move-in date to January just so they could cast their ballots for him.

    "I just bought it out front, I couldn't wait to put it on," Roberts said of her new "Feel the Bern" shirt.
