Thousands of people showed up in Palo Alto for Bernie Sanders' Wednesday afternoon rally, showing their support for the candidate they hope will win by huge margins in California's primary on June 7. The rally took place at the Cubberley Community Center Fields. Although Sanders' wasn't scheduled to start speaking until between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m., Palo Alto police said they expected traffic delays to start as early as 10 a.m. because of the huge crowds expected. The exact number who attended isn't yet known, but Palo Alto Online reported that 2,000 to 3,000 people RSVP'd, and more than that were expected to show up for the rally.
