Bernie Sanders is detailing a long list of institutions that his revolution-themed presidential campaign seeks to challenge, from pharmaceutical companies and the fossil fuel industry to wealthy political donors and members of both the Republican and Democratic parties.

The Democratic presidential candidate told a church full of supporters in Las Vegas on Saturday that "we are taking on virtually everyone."

Sanders was making his 4th visit this year as a 2020 hopeful to Nevada, the early presidential voting state. The Vermont senator in 2016 lost Nevada's third-in-line Democratic caucuses to Clinton but has maintained fierce supporters in the state, including those who remain upset with the outcome of the state's caucuses and feel the Democratic party worked to boost Clinton.
