U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, will speak at N.C. State University on Saturday, April 26.
Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, has said he is prepared to run for president of the United States. The Boston Globe reported that Sanders has been traveling the country ahead of a decision whether to run for the White House in 2016.
At N.C. State, hell be talking about womens rights, gay rights, rising tuition, climate change and money in politics. Hell be a guest of N.C. State College Democrats.
Sanders was elected to the Senate in 2006 after 16 years in the U.S. House, making him the longest serving Congressional independent in U.S. history.
