Bernie Sanders Coming To Mohegan Sun Pocono

April 11, 2019 GMT

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will come to Mohegan Sun Pocono in Plains Twp. on Monday to speak to delegates from the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals union, a union spokesman said Thursday.

Sanders will talk to about 250 union leaders who represent registered nurses and other health care professionals throughout the state, he said. The meeting is at 12:30 p.m., he said.

The event is part of Sanders’ visits to battleground states on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

He also will hold rallies in Pittsburgh as well as Madison, Wisconsin and Warren, Michigan.

He will meet with community members in Gary, Indiana and union workers in Coopersville, Michigan as well. 

In Lordstown, Ohio, Sanders will sit down with AFT President Randi Weingarten, experts and workers in the community to discuss everything from plant closures to schools.

Sanders will end the swing with a stop in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to participate in a town hall hosted by FOX News. 

A news release from his campaign says at rallies in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, three states that flipped and voted for Donald Trump in 2016, Sanders will deliver a message “focused on fighting against unfair trade deals that undermine workers wages and enrich CEOs, rebuilding and strengthening unions and guaranteeing health care as a right to all with Medicare for All.”
