Downtown Santa Cruz feels the Bern, rally draws hundreds early

SANTA CRUZ >> At 8 a.m., five hours before the Bernie Sanders rally was scheduled to begin at Kaiser Permanente Arena, the line of supporters stretched down Front Street, around the corner and halfway across the Laurel Street Bridge.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will address supporters at 1 p.m. before heading to Monterey County for a news conference near Salinas to address fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, followed by a second rally in Monterey. The Monterey rally will take place at Colton Hall Lawn at 570 Pacific St. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. at Pacific Street and the southern walkway.

As Santa Cruz police directed traffic along Front Street Tuesday morning, supporters lining the sidewalk clutched signs and coffee cups in the thick Central Coast fog, eagerly awaiting their candidate’s arrival.

Alekz Londos, 35, of Santa Cruz was the first person in line Monday night at 6 p.m. Fourteen hours on the sidewalk had not dampened his enthusiasm.
