CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) — Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is set to hold a rally at UNC Thursday, the UNC Young Democrats announced Sept. 12.
A social media post by the student organization last week said, “We’re honored to host Bernie Sanders on September 19!”
Sanders’ campaign confirmed the rally soon after the announcement and said the event will be held at 5:30 p.m. at the Bell Tower Amphitheater on UNC’s campus.
Doors for the rally open at 4 p.m.
Sanders is the third presidential candidate to hold a public event in the Triangle. Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Kamala Harris have held events at UNC and in Durham, respectively.
