Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders brought his populist message to Bowling Green Wednesday, less than two weeks before Kentucky’s Democratic primary.

The senator told a crowd of about 80 campaign workers and supporters that Americans should have access to a tuition-free college education.

Sanders also stressed his mission to equalize the economic structure of the nation. 

"What’s true in Kentucky is true in Vermont and is true in California," Sanders said. "As a nation we have millions of people who are working longer hours for low wages and almost all new income and wealth is going to the top one percent.”

Sanders arrived in Bowling Green on short notice and brought along his wife, Jane, who also received an enthusiastic reception.

Sanders trails front-runner Hilary Clinton in the delegate count, but said he is encouraged by his win in Indiana Tuesday.
