House Speaker Paul Ryan and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are coming to the George Washington University just ahead of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration to talk about legislative priorities and governing under the new administration.
The congressmen will participate in separate, live prime-time town hall events at Jack Morton Auditorium on GW’s Foggy Bottom Campus.
GW students, faculty and staff will receive an email Wednesday with information about how to request to attend the events.
