U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will be in Detroit on July 28 and accompany Type I diabetes patients on a bus trip seeking cheaper insulin in Canada, CNN reported.
“Canada has a nationalized, single-payer system that allows them to negotiate much better prices with the drug companies,” Sanders said during a Thursday interview with CNN.
Sanders last campaigned in Michigan in April in Coopersville in West Michigan and Warren in Macomb County. He is slated to be in Detroit two other times this month: a July 24 NAACP national convention presidential forum and during the two-night Democratic presidential debate on July 30 and 31.
U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) hit stops in Birmingham, Flint and Lansing last Friday. South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg has a Saugatuck fundraiser scheduled for Sunday and former Vice President Joe Biden is slated to do a Detroit rally on July 24.
