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.
