SHEBOYGAN -- Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was back in Wisconsin on Friday, April 1st -- and he started with a campaign rally in Sheboygan.

Compared to the Sanders stops earlier in the week, Friday's visit had what appeared to be a more subdued crowd at Sheboygan South High School.

Sanders stuck to his stump issues -- including increased education spending, health care and election reform. He also spent a significant amount of time talking about his progress in the polls.

The latest Marquette University Law School poll, released Wednesday, March 30th, shows Sanders leading Clinton in Wisconsin -- 49 percent to 45 percent.

Meanwhile, Sanders' campaign announced Friday that it had raised $44 million in March, a new high for the Vermont senator's White House bid.

The campaign's previous fundraising record was in February, when it raised $43.5 million. The campaign has received more than 6.5 million contributions from 2 million individual donors.

The March numbers come as a bit of a surprise after the roller-coaster month the senator had in the primary elections. Though he pulled off a coup in Michigan when he edged out Hillary Clinton, he suffered a string of losses in Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, and Arizona, all states the senator hoped to win.

    Many of the states in that “string of losses” Bernie “suffered” were by narrow margins and he still racked up delegates. I would call them marginal defeats and upsets for Sec’y Clinton.

    She reached for her phone, to read of her win…
    The final results, of Wisconsin were in….

    She stared at the screen, as her face turned bright red….
    Then she threw it at Bill, and here’s what she said….

    What the Hell’s wrong with them? And why can’t they see?….
    I am sweet, and I’m kind, I love birds, I love bee’s….

    I’m not bought, or corrupt, I’m just honest, you see…
    I don’t understand… why the PEASANTS hate me!…
