Skip to comments.Sanders to stump for Clinton Thursday [Ohio]
Posted on 11/01/2016 3:35:32 PM PDT by Hadean
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who unsuccessfully challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, will campaign on her behalf Thursday in the Mahoning Valley.
The Clinton campaign did not immediately specify a time or location, but is calling it an "early vote" event. Those interested in attending should register on Clinton's campaign website.
Sanders is expected to discuss Clinton's plans to build an economy, raising the minimum wage and making public colleges and universities tuition-free, among other platforms. He is scheduled to appear at Deering High School in Portland on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. OH remains a tight race for Clinton and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Sanders' main role in the election post-primary has been to convince his supporters, especially young progressives, to support Clinton instead of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump or third party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. The Vermont senator has since endorsed Clinton for president.
Trump has campaigned in the Valley twice: an August 15 invitation-only event at Youngstown State University and a quick September 5 visit to the Canfield Fair.
My guess is that she has promised to make him Secretary of State.
Oooh weee, he’ll never get that new vacation home paid off.
Dems always have all hands on deck and fight to win. The GOP AKA Surrender Party could learn a thing or two from that.
He’s been bought and paid for.
A $650,000 house by the sea side is a strong incentive! The poor sap doesn’t realize that he could have held out for millions from Clinton Crime Inc.
The voter ID in the primary this year was 52% Dem, 48% GOP. Mahoning County last voted that Republican in the Election of 1930.
It's not just Mahoning, either - Trumbull County and several of Ohio's Appalachian counties to the south trended strongly Trump in the primary.
It's no wonder the're sending in Sanders, but it won't help - I am confident Trump will carry Ohio.
Hillary is still doing million-dollar ad buys. When they CLEARLY worked for Jeb!
Somebody who defined themselves as being anti-establishment stumping for Clinton...hmmmm, yeah, that’ll work.
Gee a hardcore smelly old commie supporting a hardcore smelly old criminal commie. Who would have thunk?
Old reds never die, they just smell that way and get elected to Congress.
What a pathetic old man. The head of the DNC Donna Brazile feeds debate questions to Hillary during his debate and he is out campaigning for her. The DNC/Clinton campaign is totally corrupt. The only thing a self respecting Democrat can do is switch teams or vote Jill Stein.
people should have signs reading $600,000 payoff.....Bernie is the typical rat hypocrate....
gee, maybe we can break the long string of globalist statist between trump and sanders...
but with Sanders, apparently not..
They’re sending this rich old commie fool to what used to be Ohio coal country. Pretty sure there are 6 or 8 coal fired electric generating plants within 30 miles of Portland, all slated to be closed by the bitch.
If the bitch came to town she’d probably be ridden out on a rail. No one will notice Bern.
Will the Burns take it sitting down or will they fight back against what the DNC did to Bernie?
He is scheduled to appear at Deering High School in Portland
The gym can hold about 2000 for a rally like this. Not much parking in the neighborhood, but Bernie boys don’t own cars here in Portland. News showed a long line to get in so he is drawing more people than she is.
I would have gone*, but I needed to get my seat at the bar for the World Series. Not many hipsters here tonight.
* Yea right, would not by be caught dead near there.
At least Sanders is honest. When he is bought, he stays bought.
Bernie’s man card:
You can’t lose what you ain’t got.
You can’t lose what you ain’t never had.
(apologies to B.B. King.
Berne betrayed EVERYTHING HE ONCE STOOD FOR AND HIS FORMER SUPPORTERS KNOW IT! I wouldn't be surprised if they show up in droves to scream "LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP" at the top of their lungs and to loudly BOO the disgraced "Sellout Sanders" off of the stage. If I were a former Berne supporter that's what i'd do = A flash mob to vocally, resoundingly reject them both and all of the corruption they stand for!
Which trained monkey wrote this article? They are talking about Ohio, but unless there’s a city of Portland in Ohio with a Deering High (There’s a Deering High in Portland, Maine), it was poorly written.
