Democratic Presidential candidate, Vt. Sen. Bernie Sanders, is in a contest that is too close to call against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sanders' end of the evening speech touched on the rhetoric he has touted for years. He also discussed corporate interests, veterans, health care, education, college affordability, minimum wage, incarceration and climate change.

"It is just too late for establishment politics and establishment economics," Sanders said.

He congratulated Clinton and her organization, "It looks like we are in a virtual tie." Sanders also thanked former Md. Gov. Martin O'Malley who suspended his campaign earlier Monday night following lackluster poll results. "It's never easy to lose," Sanders said.

"We had no name, we had no recognition," Sanders said. He also gave digs to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump saying it's not about "billionaires buying elections."

Sanders said his campaign, which is funded by the people, received contributions from more than 3.5 million individuals who gave an average of $27.

"We do not represent the interests of the billionaire class, Wall Street or corporate America. We do not want their money." Sanders then proudly announced, "We are the only Democratic candidate without a super PAC."

Highlights of his speech centered around college affordability and healthcare.

On college affordability, he said, "People should not be punished financially because they want to get a decent education." Sanders called for free tuition for public colleges and universities.

Specifically to his critics on healthcare, the senator said, "Yes, I believe that healthcare, is a right not a privilege." He also called out the pharmaceutical rip-off of the middle class.

He also discussed the incarceration rate, alluding to the disproportionate numbers of African Americans and Latinos.

Sanders finished by calling this year's Iowa caucuses revolutionary, with the crowd joining him in saying "Enough is enough."

He called for his wish of a government representative of the people, but reiterated that no one president can do "what has to be done" alone.

"We will transform this country," Sanders said.
