Bernie Sanders to return to Seattle this week for 7th District candidate

Senator Bernie Sanders will return to Seattle this week to campaign for Pramila Jayapal, who’s running for the open 7th district congressional seat long held by retiring Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott.

Sanders, who overwhelmingly won Washington’s presidential caucuses during primary season, drew crowds of thousands during his three visits to Washington State earlier this year.

State Senator Jayapal was one of Sanders earliest supporters for president, endorsing him in August of last year. Sanders returned the favor and has since endorsed Jayapal in her congressional race against State Representative Brady Pinero Walkinshaw.
