Will Summit County feel the Bern?

Bernie Sander supporters set to rally.

Pre-caucus session set to build grassroots support for Bernie Sanders

Staff Report

Bernie Sanders supporters will rally support for their candidate at a pair of upcoming meetings at the Broken Compass Brewery in Breckenridge.

The meetings are set for Feb. 21 and Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. and have been billed as a chance for Sanders supporters and undecided voters to learn more about Sanders, who bills himself as the only candidate to offer a real chance for any meaningful change in a political system that has broken down under the influence of Big Money.

With Colorado growing into an increasingly important role as a swing state, the state’s caucuses will be watched closely across the country to see if Sanders can win support from independent-minded voters.

The first round of precinct-level caucuses are scheduled for March 2, followed by County Convention and Assemblies, held between March 2 and March 26, 2016; Congressional District Convention and Assemblies, held between April 1 and April 15, 2016; and the State Convention and Assembly, April 16, 2016. All that leads up to the July Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
