Progressive U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders attended a rally in downtown Pontiac Friday evening to show support for Congressional incumbents Andy Levin and Rashida Tlaib.

The “Get Out the Vote” rally at the Flagstar Strand Theatre comes just days before the Tuesday primary. Tlaib, who is running in the 12th Congressional District, is expected to skate to victory. But Levin is facing a tough challenge against incumbent Democrat Haley Stevens in the 11th Congressional District.

"We need members of Congress to tell the billionaire class, to tell these CEOs... that they cannot have it all," Sanders told the crowd, estimated to be in the hundreds, according to the Detroit News.
