WASHINGTON — Democratic White House hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders hits Chicago on Monday for an event hosted by the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.
Sanders, a 1964 U. of Chicago graduate, is squeezing in the event as he returns to Washington for Senate votes after an Iowa campaign swing.
Sanders will land at O’Hare Airport on Monday morning and travel to the U. of Chicago’s Rockefeller Chapel, where he plans to speak for a brief time and then take questions.
The Sanders session will be open to the press.
Afterward, he takes off to Washington from Midway Airport.
The U. of Chicago IOP was founded by David Axelrod, President Barack Obama’s former top strategist.
Chicago police say the 20-year-old man suffered cuts to his head in the first block of West 69th Street. He was hospitalized in critical condition.
Paul Vallas and Brandon Johnson were invited to the rally. Sharpton didn’t endorse Johnson, but he told the crowd to ‘let the record show who showed up’ to the event.
As the Huskies’ Jordan Hawkins put it after blowing out Gonzaga in the Elite Eight, “UConn is back.”
Durbin made the endorsement Sunday, with former Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White at his side, at Athena Restaurant on Halsted Street in Greektown, feet away from the saganaki flames.
