Brooklyn-born Vermont senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will hold his first campaign rally in Brooklyn. The rally takes place at Brooklyn College on Sunday, March 2, at 11:30 a.m. Doors open at 10 a.m. and those attending are encouraged to show up very early.
Sanders, 77, starts with support from small-dollar donors and liberal voters; he is the best-known Democrat in a crowded field, as well as outspoken against President Trump, whom he has repeatedly called a “pathological liar” and a “racist.”
“During our 2016 campaign, when we brought forth our progressive agenda, we were told that our ideas were ‘radical’ and ‘extreme. Three years have come and gone. As result of millions of Americans standing up and fighting back, all of these policies are now supported by a majority of Americans.”
