Bernie Sanders' Cincinnati Supporters To Gather For Live-Stream

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated Sanders would physically be in Cincinnati. He will, in fact, be live-streaming the event to multiple venues nationwide. 

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will bring his campaign to Cincinnati Wednesday, July 29, when he live-streams a message to supporters at the Woodward Theater in Over-the-Rhine.

According to Sanders' campaign website, the Vermont senator was to have held his event at MOTR pub on Main Street in Over-the-Rhine, but was moved to a bigger venue, the Woodward, which holds 600 people. It was moved, the web site said, "because so many people signed up so quickly." The website said 429 people had already signed up and that attendance was being limited to 550. 

More information on the event can be found on the Sanders campaign website

The event, complete with beer and appetizers, is set for 6 to 9 p.m. Sanders is supposed to begin his live-stream at 7 p.m.
