The Vermont senator spoke for an hour and did not mention his defeats by Hillary Clinton earlier in the day in primaries in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio. Instead, he reminded Arizonans that they are the next major state to vote in the Democratic contest for president. He urged the crowd to come out to vote in a week, March 22. Arizona's Republican primary is also on that day.
Sanders said, "Do not settle for the status quo when the status quo is broken."
