Thousands of people wait in line at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Sunday to meet Sen. Bernie Sanders, a presidential candidate on the Democratic ballot. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, won California’s presidential primary, collecting about a third of all votes in the delegate-rich state on Super Tuesday.

Supporters filled LACC’s South Hall to capacity, according to campaign officials. The South Hall has a capacity of 22,870 people.

Sanders became the flag carrier of the progressive left after winning the Nevada caucuses in a landslide and placing a close second in the Iowa caucuses. Super Tuesday results further narrowed the competition to largely a two-person race between Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.

William Bleeker watches Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic presidential candidate, give a speech at East Los Angeles College on Monday. Warren held the rally in East Los Angeles, a predominantly Latino neighborhood.

Warren greets Latina members of the Service Employees International Union as she takes the stage. Warren’s speech related her campaign to the Justice for Janitors movement, a labor campaign started in Los Angeles in 1990. The movement is currently organized under SEIU, which represents service workers across the United States and Canada.

Warren, a progressive known for her detailed plans on myriad issues, attracted thousands of supporters to her outdoor rally. Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of California Gov. Gavin Newsom, also spoke at the rally after endorsing Warren on Friday.

Warren, once a top contender for the nomination, lost support as the race approached Super Tuesday. The senator from Massachusetts placed third in her home state primary contest, behind Biden and Sanders.

Biden addresses the crowd in Baldwin Hills, California, on Tuesday evening as the votes from Super Tuesday rolled in. In the wake of several Democratic contenders dropping out of the race, Biden positioned himself as a frontrunner for voters without a candidate.
