Jane Sanders, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, held a town hall meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, ahead of Saturday’s caucuses. More than 250 people were in attendance at the Lakefront Hotel with hundreds more viewing online.
Topics discussed ranged from national issues such as universal health care and foreign policy to climate change and the fossil fuel industry. “Our transition from fossil fuels to clean energy must also include a transition for workers.” Sanders said.
Asked w how her husband could be effective as president, Sanders said, “Bernie doesn’t say one thing and do another. He doesn’t say, ’We can’t.’ He does what’s right and finds a way to move toward it.”
Sanders reminded everyone to get out and caucus on Saturday.
