Update 13:22 CDT: Rapid City residents can attend a Bernie Sanders event at their downtown public library as well! Katrina Wilke is hosting a Sanders for President organizing meeting tonight at 5 p.m. MDT at the downtown library, 610 Quincy St., Meeting Room B. And it turns out Bernie Sanders will be attending the Rapid City, Sioux Falls, and 3,000 other meetings tonight electronically:
On July 29, Sanders will address thousands of supporters live via streaming video from a home in Washington, D.C. According to his campaign, more than 82,000 people have indicated that they plan to attend one of the more than 3,000 simultaneous local organizing meetings.
“We have a technology available to us that Barack Obama and Howard Dean did not have,” the U.S. senator from Vermont said in an interview with the New York Times‘ First Draft. “And the idea that I can simultaneously be speaking to people located in 1,000 different places is pretty, pretty exciting.” The candidate’s address will be followed by a planning meeting for anyone who wants to stay online and discuss joining his campaign [Deirdre Fulton, “Fighting for 50 States, Sanders House Parties Expect Tens of Thousands,” Common Dreams, 2015.07.28].
The Sanders campaign said yesterday they had received over 82,000 online RSVPs for tonight’s event.
