Six days before the Nevada caucus, Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke in Las Vegas Sunday.

The Democratic presidential candidate hosted a rally at Bonanza High School.

Sanders talked about a wide range of topics, including immigration reform, college tuition, minimum wage and health care.

"When mom is out working and dad is out working and the kids are out working, wages in America are too damn low," he said.

Sanders called for raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

During his speech, the senator projected confidence, remembering how Hillary Clinton was once the overwhelming favorite in the race.

"But then a funny thing happened," Sanders said to a loud cheer. "The people became involved in the campaign."

Sanders also spoke in Reno Saturday.
