Bernie Sanders Is Coming to Tucson, Oct 9!
Progressive Presidential Candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is coming to Tucson for a speech and rally at the Reid Park band shell on October 9, 2015– next Friday.
I think this is very exciting news. For years, I have contended that Hillary Clinton won the Arizona primary in 2008 because she came to Tucson– where the Democrats live– instead of sending the second string (wives or vice presidential candidates) to Tucson as so many other candidates do.

Crowd estimate at 11,000 tonight at Reid Park bandshell. Lots of photos on
FB and TV Coverage was there too. Pam says she will be posting video on her Tucson Progressive website. U.S. Senator Sanders was charismatic and passionate in his speech tonight against corporate America and what needs to change for economic justice in our country.
When Bernie was in Phoenix last July,He/Phoenix Convention Center violated the A.D.A(Americans with Disability Act) by not allowing enought Disabled to be close to the stage where he spoke.
This was one week before the 25 year anniversity of the signing of the A.D.A.
I think that Bernie isn’t progressive in a well rounded way…
