Bernie Sanders speaking at Founders Day Dinner

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will be the featured speaker at the DFL Party’s Founders Day Dinner. The event is an annual fundraiser for the party. Sanders, a self-described Democratic socialist, was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006. He served in the U.S. House from 1991-2007.

Sanders is best known as a vocal critic of the bank bailout known as TARP (which he voted against).. He also voted against the confirmation of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and held a “mini filibuster” last December on a bill that would extend the Bush era tax cuts.

The fundraiser will be held at DFL headquarters on October 29th.
