Sanders, Trump Among Candidates To Speak At Bipartisan 'No Labels' Convention

Courtsey of
The convention starts at 8 a.m. on Monday at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester.

Presidential candidates from both sides of the aisle are coming together for the first time in New Hampshire on Monday. GOP candidates Donald Trump, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic candidates Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will all give remarks.

The convention is run by a non-profit out of D.C. called No Labels. The organization, which is made up of Republicans, Democrats and independents, believe bi-partisanship is the only way to solve the country’s problems whether its social security, national debt or unemployment.

Besides the eight presidential candidates, Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Gov. Maggie Hassan, who this week announced she is running for Ayotte’s Senate seat, will also be there. This will be the first major appearance the two have had together since the announcement.

More than 2,000 people are expected to attend.
