A town hall meeting with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will be held Sunday morning at the American Indian Center, 1530 E. Franklin Av., Minneapolis.
Sanders, the Vermont independent who’s running for the Democratic presidential nomination, is a long-shot, but may nudge Hillary Clinton to run further to the left.
The Minneapolis meeting has been moved from another location; coffee and bagels will be served at 9:30 a.m., with the town meeting running from 10 a.m. to noon.
The campaign announcement says he’s “coming to Minnesota to discuss how to take our country back from the billionaires.”
For those, like me, who crave honest conviction and straight talk (which the pundits have decided to call “authenticity”), Sanders will be a tonic, however long he lasts in the race.
