Democratic presidential Bernie Sanders is banking on Missouri primary backers to provide the campaign boost that he got last week by a surprise victory in Michigan.
Sanders’ stump speech makes a point of reaching out to all ages and all ethnicities. Still, it’s clear that his appeal is particularly strong among those of college-age, many of whom embrace his promise of tuition-free education at public universities and colleges.
The cheers were deafening as Sanders declared that “hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college, even though they are qualified. That is wrong. It is wrong for those young people. It is wrong for the future of our economy."
