Due to expectations of a large crowd, Democratic presidential primary frontrunner Bernie Sanders is moving a planned rally Saturday in Northern Virginia.

The Vermont senator will be competing in Virginia’s primary contest Tuesday.

Saturday’s rally will now be held at 4 p.m. at St. James Sports, Wellness and Entertainment Complex at 6805 Industrial Road, Springfield. The previous venue was outside of Leesburg.

The event will include Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota.

Doors open at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is encouraged. Entrance is provided on a first come, first served basis.

Those traveling by Metro can take the blue line to Franconia-Springfield; from Metro Bay F, take the 322 bus to Industrial Road and Fairfax Archives.

Sad what's happened to Virginia thanks to Bloomberg's Money


What did Bloomberg do? You are lying again because you hate a strong Democrat. You need to re-think your party and what they don't stand for.


From what I saw last night, there isn’t a strong Democrat. These past two debates have been a fiasco. They’re tripping all over themselves to see who can spend the most tax dollars to buy votes. Too bad people are being hoodwinked into all of the “free” stuff.


A strong Democrat is one thing. A strong Communist who calls himself a Socialist is entirely different.


Bloomberg admitted to buying the democrat majority in the house at the debate last night. He tried to stop himself but his brain couldn't catch up to his mouth.


Search for "The Red Green Axis." Omar with Bernie? It's the "Red Green Axis" in full play. They want to transform America.


Bernie & Omar? Oh yeah, that's the ticket.
