Bernie Sanders to campaign for Hillary Clinton in Arizona on Tuesday
Former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders will campaign for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in Arizona on Tuesday, the Clinton campaign announced Sunday night.
Sanders will hold Early Vote rallies in Flagstaff and Tucson a day before Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, will visit ASU’s campus on Wednesday.
He will speak at Prochnow Auditorium at Northern Arizona University at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Doors open at 1 p.m.
Sanders will then speak at the Arizona State Museum in Tucson at 7 p.m. Doors to that event open at 6 p.m.
It’s expected that Sanders will discuss Clinton’s economic proposals in comparison to that of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and explain why he wants to see the minimum-wage raises. Sanders is expected to also touch on climate change, sustainable energy, public education tuition fees and a criminal justice system he says is “broken,” according to a press release.
The decision for Sanders and Chelsea Clinton to rally in Arizona comes as the state polls as a slight favorite to favor Trump.
