Sanders Stops in QC for Volunteer Event
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stopped in the Quad Cities today for a volunteer canvass. Around 150 people attended the campaign stop in Davenport--many were there to volunteer for Sanders, a Democrat.
Lisa Lewis Garman from Davenport helped organize canvass routes today, and has been volunteering since September. Once she decided she supported Sanders, her next step was to donate her time to his campaign.
While most volunteers are canvassing door-to-door, Air Force Veteran Nick Tsacudakis, from Davenport, says he's been helping out in other ways.
Corey Harrington, a student at Palmer College of Chiropractic from North Carolina, has been volunteering for Sanders since October. He plans to help out in the caucuses next month in order to "take back our democracy."
Sanders also stopped in Clinton this afternoon, and will be in Maquoketa for a town meeting at 7 pm tonight.
