HOUSTON, TX - Speaking to a crowd of more than 5,000 Houston voters on Sunday, Bernie Sanders made his case for why he should be elected president in 2016.

The Vermont senator addressed income inequality, college affordability and climate change in his speech at the University of Houston. He is considered the most liberal candidate on the ballot so far, but he doesn't think that will stop him - even in Texas.

"I am here to tell you that today it's a conservative Republican state, but that doesn't mean it will be conservative Republican tomorrow," Sanders told the the crowd.

He visited Dallas earlier in the day Sunday.
