Democratic Presidential Candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders to hold rally in El Paso

Democratic Presidential Candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders, will be in Downtown El Paso on Saturday for a campaign rally.

According to the candidate’s website, the event is scheduled for the Abraham Chavez Theater,  with the doors opening at 12:30 p.m. and the event starting at 2 p.m.

Senator Sanders’ visit to El Paso, and later in the evening San Antonio, comes on the same day as the Nevada Primary, and two weeks prior to ‘Super Tuesday’ where Texas and 13 other states head to the polls.

Sanders’ rallies in the Lone Star state also coincide with national polling numbers showing him surging in the race for the Democratic Nomination.
