A vacant building on Mulberry Street in downtown Rockford is currently being transformed into a Bernie Sanders campaign site, and will be hosting a kick-off party Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m.

This new Rockford campaign site located in the old Empirical Tech Works building at 309 Mulberry will not only serve Winnebago, but Boone and Stephenson counties as well. The public is invited to stop in to learn more about Bernie Sanders' platform, or to pick up yard signs and bumper stickers for those already "feeling the Bern".

This Rockford campaign site will be open through the Illinois primary on March 15, 2016.
