For all of you people feeling the Bern, your guy Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont will be in San Diego, CA today, for a rally starting at 3 p.m.
The Senator will make an appearance at Qualcomm Stadium, with a concert and rally featuring Nahko and Medicine for the People, Michael Mowgli & The Altruists, Joel Rafael, and special guests George Lopez, Shailene Woodley, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, Kendrick Sampson and Dr. Cornel West.
Despite all the statistics and facts pointing to Secretary Hillary Clinton getting the nomination sewed up with the primaries taking place this week, Sanders is continuing his campaign, hoping the large number of Super Delegates will change their allegiance from Clinton to Sanders at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA, July 25-28.
California has record voter registration this year, much of it spurred by Sanders and GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump. Even if Sanders wins the California primary, Clinton will still have more pledged and Super Delegates going into the convention.
Sanders has the vast majority of young voters’ support, 66 to 30 percent, but with other demographics Clinton has the lead. In California polls the former Secretary of State leads the Senator by two points, well within the margin of error.
The concert and rally at Qualcomm Stadium is free and open to the public, but it’s first come, first served, so get there early. The campaign strongly suggests carpooling or taking public transportation. You can find parking in any of the Mission Valley Malls (Fashion Valley, Hazard Center and Westfield Mission Valley) and then get on the Green Line Trolley heading east to the Q.
The Sanders Campaign suggests: “For security reasons, please do not bring bags and limit what you bring to small, personal items like keys and cell phones. Weapons, sharp objects, chairs, and signs or banners will not be allowed through security.”
Go feel the Bern.
We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
