Senator Bernie Sanders will be stopping in the Alamo City following his appearance at SXSW next month.
Sanders is set to arrive Friday, March 9 for a fundraiser for Our Revolution Texas, who describes themselves as a "statewide progressive populist organization that formed in the wake of the Bernie Sanders campaign." Ohio politician Nina Turner will appear alongside Sanders.
The longest-serving independent in U.S. history, Sanders rose to national prominence after opposing presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primary.
The fundraiser takes place at Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex in Southtown, from 5 PM - 6:30 PM. Our Revolution Texas says that space is limited. Tickets for the event are available starting at $27 and are available through The Action Network.
