Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump to Hold Rallies in Albany Monday
Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are both planning rallies in Albany on Monday.
As the race for the White House continues to make its way through New York, the candidates have been focusing their energy on locking in those Empire State delegates ahead of the Republican and Democratic national conventions.
This week begins with two large rallies in Albany. On Monday, Bernie Sanders will host a "Future To Believe In" event at the Washington Avenue Armory starting at 11am. The event is free and no tickets are required for entry. However, the campaign strongly suggests visiting their website to RSVP.
According to the Sanders campaign, bags will not be allowed inside the event. Only small personal items like phones and keys will be permitted. Attendees are also being encouraged to carpool or take public transportation to limit potential traffic problems.
Donald Trump will hold his own rally on Monday night at the Times Union Arena. That event is also free, but tickets are required. You can visit the Trump campaign's website and register for two complementary tickets. Upon filling out a form your tickets will be electronically sent back to you.
No posters, banners, or signs will be allowed at the Trump rally. Also, professional cameras with a detachable lens, selfie sticks and GoPros are all banned from he event. Thankfully, though, the Trump website makes it clear that those attending do not need to follow a specific dress code.
Will you be attending either rally on Monday night? If so, we'd love to hear about your experience. Feel free to post any photos or updates on our official Facebook page.
