Bernie Sanders: Democratic Presidential Candidate Holds Town Hall Meeting in Savannah, Ga.


SAVANNAH, GA – Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is in Savannah as part of a three day tour through South Carolina and Georgia. He is holding a town hall meeting at the Savannah Civic Center in front of a packed house.

The doors opened at 5 p.m. and people piled into the civic center by the hundreds. Some supporters were lined up before 4 p.m.

The senator from Vermont has been in politics since the early 1980s and now he’s putting in his bid for president. One of his priorities is education. Senator Sanders promotes dual enrollment programs for high school students to get college credit and he is an opponent of standardized testing. Rebuilding the economy is another focus for him. He wants to address the record high youth unemployment and is against tax cuts for the wealthy. Senator Sanders is also pushing for more affordable prescription medications and better care for veterans.
