Three months after joining the 2020 presidential race, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is ready to hold his first home-state rally of the campaign.
Sanders plans to address Vermonters outside the Statehouse in Montpelier on May 25 at 2 p.m. According to a campaign press release, the event “will highlight Sanders’ career in public service and celebrate the impact it’s had on Vermont through the years.” Singer Brandi Carlile will also perform, the campaign said.
In recent months, Sanders has been a frequent presence in the early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and California. But he has held no public events in Vermont since joining the race. Sanders has not held a press conference in the state since July 2018.
