Bernie Sanders Comes to Koreatown
UPDATE at 11:58 p.m., Wednesday, March 23, 2016: See our coverage of Sanders' rally, here.
Oh boy. There's going to be a clash of hippies and Bernie Bros in Koreatown on Wednesday.
Korean taco aficionados will meet the gluten-free nation for a liberal love fest at the Wiltern Theater. Leave your Subarus at home and ride your bikes, for Earth's sake.
That's because Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is coming to town.
He was in San Diego for a standing-room-only crowd on Tuesday. We should have known he'd swing through Los Angeles.
According to an email from organizers, he will hold a rally at 7 p.m. on March 23 at the Wiltern (capacity 1,200 to 4,000, depending on configuration), which is at Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue:
Sanders will discuss a wide range of issues, including getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care.
