Sanders' Visit To McDowell County Canceled

The West Virginia National Guard said a scheduled appearance by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at a southern West Virginia armory was canceled due to U.S. Defense Department policy.

The Guard said in a news release that Defense Department policy prohibits the use of military facilities for political and election events, including town hall meetings. The West Virginia State Armory Board has a similar policy.

The statement said Monday's event at the Welch armory was pulled after details were shared with the state adjutant general's office on Friday. MSNBC planned to host the event.

Sanders, who lost to Hillary Clinton in last year's Democratic presidential primary, was scheduled to be in Charleston on Sunday as part of a book tour.
