Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders addressed an enthusiastic crowd in Downtown Evansville. 

Sanders told supporters at the Old National Events Plaza that his campaign doesn’t have a Super PAC, so he can enter the White House without ties to special interests.

Sanders also called for a “moral economy” including a $15 minimum wage, equal pay for women, and three months of family and medical leave.

And he told the crowd that polls show him easily beating Donald Trump in a general election.

It’s the end of an era in Downtown Evansville, where a business is moving to the city’s East Side after more than a century downtown.

Siegel's Uniforms has long been a fixture on 4th Street, but General Manager Matt Baumeyer tells WNIN that the business is moving to a larger location with more parking: the former Kid’s Room furniture store on N. Congress Avenue.

Baumeyer says investors have plans for the old Siegel’s building, including a restaurant, loft apartments, and possible retail.

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump brought his campaign to Evansville on Thursday, and he drew a big crowd.

Supporters began lining-up outside the Old National Events Plaza early in the morning to get the best seats inside the Aiken Theater.

While waiting in line, they had plenty of opportunities to buy souvenirs like t-shirts, buttons, and well-known Trump baseball caps.

Strong storms that rolled through the Evansville area Tuesday evening apparently included a tornado.

The National Weather Service says preliminary surveying suggests an EF1 tornado with winds of about 100 miles-an-hour struck the Evansville area.

The Emergency Management Agency received numerous reports of downed electrical lines, trees, and utility poles in northwestern Vanderburgh County, where hundreds of Vectren customers were still without electricity Wednesday morning.
