U.S. Presidential Hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders Shoots Hoops At San Diego Barcade

August 6, 2019

During Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders recent visit to America's Finest City, the Vermont senator took some time to get a little basketball in at downtown San Diego's Coin-Op Gameroom.

"Getting some practice while in San Diego," Senator Bernie Sanders posted to his Instagram. "Have to stay sharp in the offseason."

Bernie Sanders was in San Diego on Sunday, August 4, for the UnidosUS conference but took a much needed respite later that day to shoot hoops at the Coin-Op Game Room location in the Gaslamp Quarter. Fortunately for the self-described democratic socialist and progressive presidential hopeful, he visited Coin-Op during its monthly first-Sunday free-play. While in San Diego, Sanders also spoke before more than 1,000 Monday evening at Centro Universidad Popular in Vista.
