Bernie Sanders to rally votes at Castleton

What’s scarier than showing up at a Halloween party with the same costume as someone else? Forgetting to vote!For a little inspiration, Bernie Sanders, the Independent candidate for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by outgoing Sen. James Jeffords, will be on campus Tuesday as part of a statewide series of rallies leading up to the Nov. 7 election.

Starting at 4 p.m. at the Campus Center Amphitheater (or Multipurpose room if it rains), the rally will include speeches by Sanders, as well as appearances from Peter Welch, democratic candidate for Sanders’ seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, Scudder Parker, democratic candidate for Governor, and Matt Dunne, the democratic candidate for Lt. Governor.

Live music and refreshments will be on hand, including an appearance by Vermont folk-rock songstress Anais Mitchell.

“We had a great time,” said Laura Bagby, a Sanders campaign representative who attended a similar rally at UVM. “So many kids turned out.”
