Bernie Sanders to Rally in San Diego on Sunday
Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will visit San Diego again this weekend for another rally, a senior official from his campaign confirmed Thursday.
Sanders will hold his rally at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Northeast Parking Lot of Qualcomm Stadium, located at 9449 Friars Rd. in Mission Valley. The gates open at 3 p.m.
According to the Sanders campaign, the rally will include appearances by celebrities like George Lopez and Shailene Woodley, as well as Nahko and Medicine for the People, Michael Mowgli & The Altruists and Joel Rafael. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, Kendrick Sampson and Dr. Cornel West will also join in support of Sanders.
The event is free and open to the public. Supporters can RSVP ahead of the rally here.
Parking is limited at Qualcomm Stadium, so attendees are advised to carpool or get dropped off at the event. Public transportation is also recommended, including taking the San Diego MTS trolley’s Green Line directly to Qualcomm Stadium.
If San Diego law enforcement issues road closures in the area, NBC 7 will bring you those updates in this article.
Sanders’ trip to San Diego comes within just days of the June 7 California Primary.
Bill Clinton also rallied on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in San Diego on May 21.
