Bernie Sanders rallies in Washington state today

Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders will travel to Washington state this weekend for three rallies today.

Sanders will hold rallies in Vancouver, Seattle and Spokane:

  • Vancouver rally - Hudson's Bay High School, 1601 E McLoughlin Blvd, Vancouver.  Doors open at 11 a.m. 
  • Seattle rally -  KeyArena at Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St, Seattle. Doors open at 2 p.m.
  • Spokane rally - Spokane Convention Center, Ballroom 111ABC, 334 West Spokane Falls Blvd., Spokane. Doors open at 6 p.m.

According to the Sanders' campaign, he plans to discuss a wide range of issues, ranging from college affordability, immigration reform and campaign finance reform. 

In Seattle, Sanders will be with Larry Cohen, the former president of the Communication Workers of America. The Sanders campaign said also scheduled to speak were Dean McGrath, the president of Local 23 of the International Labor Workers Union, and other local labor leaders.

The events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged.  (RVSP for Vancouver, Seattle or Spokane here) Admission is first come, first serve, say organizers.

A Seattle Times analysis last week showed Seattle ranks No. 1 among the 50 biggest U.S. cities for per-capita donations to Sanders.

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Washington state Monday to campaign for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Late Friday, Clinton's campaign announced she would campaign in Seattle and Everett on Tuesday.
    
There are 118 Democratic delegates at stake in Washington, with 101 to be awarded proportionally based on the results of the caucuses.
    
The remaining 17 are technically unpledged party and elected leaders, though a majority of them - including Gov. Jay Inslee and the state's Congressional delegation - have already said they support Clinton.
