Bernie Sanders Plans Labor Day Speeches in N.H.

Aug 31, 2017

Vermont Senator and former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will make two stops in the state on Labor Day.

Sanders will start his day with a speech at the annual AFL-CIO breakfast in Manchester. The event, hosted by the New Hampshire chapter of the country’s largest labor union, will also feature New Hampshire Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and Representative Annie Kuster.

Later that morning, Sanders will speak at an event at Rollins Park in Concord hosted by the progressive group Rights and Democracy NH.

Executive Councilor Andy Volinsky is also scheduled to speak at both events. He says he expects Sanders to address the same health care and economic issues that propelled his candidacy in New Hampshire in 2016.

“I think the fact that he’s coming means that he is still focused on these very important issues. And by continuing his focus, hopefully he continues our energy.”

Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic primary by double digits.
