U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has added a presidential campaign stop on Saturday in West Michigan.
He is scheduled to hold an event at 1:30 p.m. at the United Association Local 174 in Coopersville, north of Grand Rapids, WWMT-TV reports. It will not be open to the public.
Earlier this week, Sanders announced a 5 p.m. rally on the other side of the state Saturday at Macomb Community College in Warren, as the Advance reported.
Sanders won Michigan’s 2016 Democratic presidential primary over eventual nominee Hillary Clinton.
Michigan already is a hotbed of 2020 political activity. President Donald Trump kicked off his re-election campaign in Grand Rapids last month. Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) and U.S. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) stopped by in March, as well.
