UFC lightweight contender Kevin Lee will be one of several celebrity guests at a Saturday, December 21 Bernie Sanders rally in Las Vegas. Lee’s involvement in the rally was announced in a Friday press release.
Per the press release:
Bernie 2020 National Campaign Co-Chair Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, DJ Cassidy and UFC fighter Kevin Lee will join Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday night at their Las Vegas Rally.
“Senator Sanders is the voice of the people,” said DJ Cassidy. “He is the voice of equality, opportunity, diversity, and freedom, and I believe he can restore our path towards those American ideals. I am honored to be joining him and Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez at the rally in Las Vegas and can assure everyone I will turn it into a party!”
At the rally, DJ Cassidy will perform a set before Kevin Lee introduces National Campaign Co-Chair Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez will then be joined by local leaders, activists and elected officials fighting for economic, environmental and racial justice, and against the corporate assault on working families across America.
