Hundreds of University of Maryland students and residents of College Park are members of Terps for Bernie, an organization led by students who support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) for president. Among many things done in support of the Democratic presidential candidate, the organization hosts debate watch parties, canvassing events on campus and in the surrounding area and makes calls to voters in states across the country. Ahead of Super Tuesday, when fifteen states hold primary elections and caucuses, the group drove from the University of Maryland to Springfield, Virginia to attend a Sanders campaign rally.
