WELCH, W.Va. (AP) - An appearance in southern West Virginia by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders that was canceled last month has been rescheduled for this weekend.

WVVA-TV (http://bit.ly/2mioyGN ) reports Sanders will speak Sunday at Mount View High School in Welch. The event is being hosted by MSNBC.

Sanders‘ Feb. 13 appearance at the West Virginia National Guard armory in Welch was canceled. The Guard cited a U.S. Defense Department policy prohibited the use of military facilities for political and election events, including town hall meetings.

Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton in last year’s Democratic presidential primary.
