SACRAMENTO (KGO) -- After weekly rallies at the state capitol by Trump supporters and the Proud Boys that often turned violent, counter protesters responded in a major way on Saturday.

More than a hundred members of various anti-fascist groups from around Northern California outnumbered Trump supporters who were calling for a recount of the presidential election.
