Vermont Democrats rallied inside the University of Vermont Davis Center Sunday afternoon.

Over the past three days, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has helped to lead six rallies across the state.

He, along with several other democratic leaders, talked about the importance of getting out to vote on Nov. 8th, and why he supports Sue Minter for governor.

"The job of governor is a very difficult job, and she is gonna need the support of every single person in this room, as there are special interests who do not want us to go forward. So let us do everything we can in the next two weeks to help elect Sue Minter as Governor," said Sanders.

Minter went on to say she would work hard to carry on Sanders' fight to bring liveable wage, jobs and economic equality to Vermonters.

"We need to rebuild our struggling middle class, and that's why I am so glad, so proud to have Bernie's endorsement to be the next Governor of the great state of Vermont," said Minter.
