Vermont Sen. and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders roused the Democratic faithful tonight in a rally at Pontchartrain Center in Kenner.

A button vendor outside Pontchartrain Center was wearing a "Feel the Bern" T-shirt and vending Sanders campaign buttons ? one for $5, three for $10.

Before the rally, Sanders made an appearance at the home of Dr. Gilda Reed, a University of New Orleans professor and former candidate for Louisiana's 1st Congressional District. Addressing about 40 people in Reed's living room, Sanders asked what Louisiana voters were concerned about ? the answers included a raise in the minimum wage, universal health care, a ban on fracking and GMOs.?
