DENVER (AP) - Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ignited Colorado supporters with a blistering condemnation of billionaires and corporations, drawing a crowd of nearly 5,000 to Denver on Saturday to support his presidential campaign.

The 73-year-old Independent spoke for an hour and hit a nerve on economic issues as he advocated for an end to income inequality, as well as a higher minimum wage, pay equity for women and more government spending on infrastructure.

In an interview with The Denver Post before the event (http://tinyurl.com/oo5r7fo), Sanders said his economic message is resonating with voters.

The event followed standing-room only crowds in Iowa and Nevada, as well as 3,000 at a Minneapolis rally.

Sanders is in a race for the Democratic presidential nomination with Hillary Rodham Clinton.
