    MSNBC Cancels Sanders Event in McDowell County


    WLECH– MSNBC has announced the cancellation of a town hall meeting with former presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., which was scheduled for Monday morning at the Welch National Guard Armory.

    Sanders, a former candidate for president, was to speak at the armory for an MSNBC special “All In with Chris Hayes” event. People in the McDowell County area were invited to share their ideas and concerns.
