Will Bernie Sanders Skydive into His Rally Tonight?

As reported in The Week, there is much buzz as to just how Bernie Sanders will arrive at his rally in Cloverdale, California, tonight (June 3, 2016). There is a possibility the presidential candidate will skydive to the rally, which happens to be taking place at an airport.

The president of NorCal Skydiving, Jimmy Halliday, told the press that he had already done a jump with a Sanders staffer, and that the staffers are discussing the option with Sanders.

“I’ve been told they will run the idea by Bernie. I can’t confirm that’s the plan. I know that’s a possibility,” Halliday said. But if it does happen, “I will personally take him.”

The manager of the Cloverdale airport, Michael Morrissey, also reported this might actually happen. He mentioned, quite slyly, something about a “grand entrance.”

Halliday’s skydiving firm has, according to The Press Democrat, taken skydivers in their 70s and 80s. Sanders is 74.

The rally begins at 7:30 p.m. California time. Sanders is expected to arrive at 8:00.
