Kevin Howard, center, laughs with fellow Sanders supporters while waiting at the front of the line for doors to open for the rally. Howard arrived at noon for the 7:30 p.m. speech and was one of the first 30 people in line. Howard distinctly remembers an interview Sanders conducted with CSPAN while he was mayor of Burlington in 1988 in which he addressed the same issues with the same stances that he is still speaking about today in his presidential campaign. "Integrity matters - Sanders is one of those politicians who believes what he says. The more you learn about him, the better he gets," said Howard.
