Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has announced he hold a rally in Kissimmee Thursday, one of three Florida stops this week — the first public speeches of his campaign in the Sunshine State.
The U.S. Senator from Vermont, who badly trails Hillary Clinton in Florida polls, will speak at a Miami rally today and at Kissimmee and Tampa rallies on Thursday.
Sanders will discuss issues such as college affordability, immigration reform and the need to take on a rigged economy held in place by a corrupt campaign finance system, according to his campaign.
The Miami program begins at 7 p.m. tonight at the James L. Knight Center, with doors opening at 4:30 p.m.
On Thursday, he’ll be at the Osceola Heritage Park for a 3 p.m. program, with doors opening at noon.
Then he’ll go to Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall for a 7 p.m. program, with doors opening at 4 p.m.
