Bernie Sanders supporters made their voices heard and took to the streets of downtown Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.

Several hundred marched from Main Street down to Olympic Boulevard all the way to the steps of City Hall for a rally.

"I really can relate to him. I'm part of the 99 percent and I just feel like he's the candidate for the 99 percent," one supporter said.

The Democratic presidential hopeful wasn't in town for the march and rally, but he was there in spirit in the form of floats and signs. Supporters included Los Angeles City Councilman Gil Cedillo and many know California's June 7 primary is going to be key to the campaign.

Those feeling the Bern said they are focused on reaching out to Independents and Latinos who will be a big component at the polls in the state.

Polls show that Hillary Clinton still leads in California, but Sanders supporters said they're not giving up the fight.
