Bernie Sanders Event Rescheduled For Sunday In West Virginia

WELCH, W.Va. – An appearance in southern West Virginia by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders that was canceled last month has been rescheduled for this weekend.

Sanders will speak Sunday at Mount View High School in Welch. The event is being hosted by MSNBC.

Sanders’ Feb. 13 appearance at the West Virginia National Guard armory in Welch was canceled. The Guard cited a U.S. Defense Department policy prohibited the use of military facilities for political and election events, including town hall meetings.

The meeting on Sunday is set to begin at 2:30pm. Those who are interested in attending the meeting can call 1-800-840-4580 or send an email to wvtownhall@gmail.com
