Ms. Sanders' push for the liberal arts college's costly land acquisition was cited in a press release by the college when it shut down in 2016.

Sanders spokesperson Josh Miller-Lewis told ABC News, "We're at a pivotal moment in the fight to save health care and the goal this weekend is to elevate that fight".

The deal closed in 2010, when the senator's wife was president of Burlington College, a tiny, obscure, nontraditional school that always seemed to be struggling for students and funds.
