Bernie Sanders to Hold Rally in Bismarck This Friday, May 13th
Get ready to 'feel the Bern,' as Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has announced he will be holding a rally this Friday night, May 13th, in Bismarck.
The 'A Future to Believe In Bismarck' rally will take place at 8 p.m. at the historic depot in downtown Bismarck, according to BernieSanders.com. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
Admission is free and first come, first served. The public entrance will be at the 5th Street and Main Avenue side of the parking lot. Those in attendance are asked not bring bags and keep their personal items limited to smaller things, like keys and cell phones.
This will be Sanders' second appearance in North Dakota that day. He'll appear at the Ramada Fargo Convention Center for his 'A Future to Believe In' rally at 11 a.m.
Sanders will follow in the footsteps of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, who also made stops in Bismarck.
The other Democratic hopeful, Hillary Clinton, reportedly has staffers in North Dakota, as well.
Leading Republican nominee Donald Trump has already announced a stop in North Dakota's capital city later this month at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference. More tickets for that event were released to the public earlier today (5/11).
We'll update this post will more details as they become available.
