Bernie Sanders returns to Albany on Friday

Future Democratic agenda likely topic of senator's talk

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will appear on Friday at the Empire State Plaza as part of his New York tour addressing the question of "where we go from here."

Sanders will appear at 1 p.m. at the Egg. Doors will open at 11 a.m. The event is open to the public, though RSVPs are encouraged by the campaign at https://go.berniesanders.com/.

While Sanders has not officially dropped out of the race to seek the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton has wrapped up enough delegates to make herself the likely nominee heading into the July convention.

Sanders was appearing in Manhattan on Thursday night and, in addition to Albany on Friday a late add by the campaign he also will appear in Syracuse in the evening.

Campaign spokesman Michael Briggs told USA Today that Sanders' Thursday night focus (likely to be his Friday focus) will be "on policy from income and wealth inequality to climate change and how he hopes the Democratic Party will adopt the most progressive platform ever."

2. Would love to go, since Albany is only 50 minutes away.

However. Our Food Pantry pickup and stock the shelves for tomorrow is today. Bernie would approve.

3. I wish I'd known sooner, too.

I wish he'd come just a bit farther North. I missed him in Albany the last time, too. It's at least an hour for me and the parking sounds like a nightmare...

And I agree, Bernie would definitely approve of your priorities!
