Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ supporters said the Vermont senator should feel at home during his quick visit to Vancouver on Sunday.
“It’s a place where people care about each other. … We care about the air, the water, the place we live and other human beings,” said Roben White, a volunteer with Clark County Democrats. “Which is an example of what Bernie is about and his campaign is about.”
Sanders will hold rallies in Vancouver, Seattle and Spokane on Sunday ahead of the state’s Democratic caucuses on March 26.
Sanders’ campaign said he will speak on college affordability, immigration reform and the need for campaign finance reform.
The rally in Vancouver will be held at 1 p.m. at Hudson’s Bay High School, 1601 E. McLoughlin Blvd. The gym has seating for 4,400 people, with space for 300 on the floor. Doors will open at 11 a.m., with admittance on a first-come, first-served basis. An RSVP on the Sanders campaign website does not guarantee admission.
