Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is making a return trip to the Northland.

A month after he spoke to a crowd of more than 5,000 in Duluth, Sanders will host a rally in Hibbing on Friday morning, his campaign announced Wednesday. The appearance will be just a few days before next Tuesday’s caucuses in Minnesota, with Sanders and Hillary Clinton vying for the state’s Democratic delegates.
Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. for the rally to be held later in the morning at the Hibbing High School Auditorium, 800 E. 21st St.; the campaign did not publicly announce the exact start time. Sanders is set to discuss “a wide range of issues, including getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care for all,” Sanders’ campaign announced in a news release.
The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged online at go.berniesanders.com/page/event/detail/rally/4gpkq . Admission is first-come, first-served.
For security reasons, rally attendees are asked to not bring bags to the event. Weapons, sharp objects, chairs and signs on sticks will not be allowed through security, the campaign said.
Sanders spoke at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center on Jan. 26.
