Bernie Sanders to Speak at Kansas Democratic Party Gathering

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont (photo credit:

Former Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders is scheduled to speak at the Kansas Democratic Party's Washington Days convention later this month. The party announced Tuesday that the Vermont senator will speak at the convention February 25th in Topeka. The Kansas Democratic Party Executive Director Kerry Gooch says he expects Senator Sanders will speak on the importance of being actively involved in local and state politics.

The Vermont senator mounted a strong challenge to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic race for the presidential nomination before eventually losing to Clinton. Sanders soundly defeated Clinton in Kansas' presidential caucus last March, winning with 68 percent of the vote to 32 percent for Clinton.
