Senator Bernie Sanders to visit Texas in midterm blitz
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders will travel to Texas next week as part of a multi-state blitz ahead of the November 8 midterm elections, campaign officials announced this week.
The Vermont senator will oppose two progressive congressional candidates, Greg Casar and Michelle Vallejo, and plans to rally in San Marcos, Austin and McAllen. As Casar campaigns in a deep blue seat that stretches from Austin to San Antonio, Vallejo is running in a hotly contested South Texas district that Republicans hope to unseat this fall.
