Bernie Sanders to Campaign for Hillary Clinton in Ohio, Lay Out Stakes of Election for Millennial Voters
On Saturday, September 17, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont will campaign for Hillary Clinton in Ohio, where he will lay out the stakes of November's election. At public events in the Canton, Kent and Akron areas, Sanders will emphasize Clinton's plans to support millennials, including making free community college and debt-free college available to all Americans, protecting access to health care for young Americans, reforming our immigration system and supporting DREAMers and their families, raising the minimum wage and protecting our climate. He will also urge Ohioans to register to vote ahead of the October 11 deadline.
This week, Hillary for Ohio released a report which finds that, under Clinton's college plan, the New College Compact, 150,000 Ohio students would pay no tuition for a four-year college degree. Clinton's plan allows families with incomes up to $125,000 -- more than 89 percent of Ohio households -- to pay no tuition at in-state public colleges and universities. The full report can be viewed online here.
In the Canton area, Sanders will kick off a "Weekend of Action" organizing event, and in the Kent and Akron areas, Sanders will rally Ohioans on college campuses. Additional details about these events will be released soon.
