Bernie Sanders Rally Moves to Moda Center

Thursday, August 06, 2015

 

The man behind the rally.

The Bernie Sanders for President Rally in Portland this Sunday will move across the Rose Quarter from the Memorial Coliseum into the much larger Moda Center. Sanders' largest rally to date appears to be 11,000 people in Phoenix last month. The capacity of the Memorial Coliseum is nearly 13,000. Local supporters worried as soon as the announcement was made that that wouldn’t be nearly enough.

"Moving the venue was critical. They've had to do this almost everywhere so far, it’s unreal. [Sanders] drew 10,000 in Portland, Maine! I wouldn't be surprised if we doubled that and see 20,000 cheering supporters show up on Sunday," said local Sanders volunteer Casey Houlihan. 

The capacity of the Moda Center is 20,000. Shortly after the rally was announced, speculation was 9000 people had already RSVP’ed and 5500 have RSVP’ed on an unofficial Facebook page.
