The California primary is Tuesday and Bernie Sanders wooed the gay vote today by visiting drag brunch at Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood.
Drag Race queen Jasmine Masters joked that she was midtuck when she heard the Democratic candidate was in the house and nearly broke a nail.
“We need a government that represents all of us,” Sanders, who was walking through L.A.’s legendary gayborhood, told the crowd. “Not just the 1%.”

Could the appearance help him at the polls?
A USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll puts Sanders ahead of Clinton 44% to Clinton’s 43%, though that 1% difference is within the margin of error.
