BRATTLEBORO — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., spent the weekend meeting with supporters at four different locations across the state to ask for help in his bid for re-election this fall.
On Sunday, Sanders stood before nearly 200 people at the All Souls Church in West Brattleboro to explain his work in Washington D.C., and lay out the problems Vermonters and the rest of the country are facing and what’s at stake this fall.
The Senator wasted little time before detailing the untold agendas of politicians like presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
“If you asked anyone, on any street corner in America, if they wanted social services, health care and education cut, they’d say no,” Sanders said. “But that’s what we’ll get with extreme right-wing Republicans.

Sanders and his political entourage were in Rutland and Bennington on Saturday to meet with people there and on Sunday they traveled to St. Johnsbury before arriving in Brattleboro.
