PHOENIX - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' wife Jane O'Meara Sanders is in Arizona this weekend.
During her visit, she’ll travel to Flagstaff, Sedona and Oak Flat and will hold a get out the vote rally March 14th at Sanders’ Phoenix headquarters.
She says supporters who are "Feeling the Bern" are concerned with what the average person has to face.
“We knew that people were very concerned about the cost of health care and higher education,” says Sanders. “They are very concerned about climate change."
We asked Jane her thoughts on the violence that's broke out at some of the political rallies.
“They expressed hatred this is not what American politics is supposed to be about,” says Sanders. “My hope is that this presidential election will bring people together. That's Bernie's message. He feels that the only way we can transform this country to deal with the issues that are most important to the average American is that we recognize we're all in this together.”
Jane says if Bernie is elected, he hopes to create more local jobs for the people.
“Democratic socialism is really just recognizing that people need to be considered as well as business that the purpose of government is not just to make profits for the corporations, but to create jobs for the people and to ensure that they have access to affordable health care and affordable housing - that they have the opportunity to get as much education as they desire and qualify for.”
Sanders will also visit a sacred site in Apache Junction during her stay in Arizona.
300 people are expected to attend the Phoenix rally Monday at Sanders’ campaign headquarters off 13th Street and Washington.
