Bernie Sanders planning a campaign stop in MI

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Bernie Sanders for President has announced his tour of the Midwest "battleground states."

He'll be holding rallies in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania as a path to a democratic victory to the White House.

He'll make additional stops on Ohio and Indiana.

"The tour will emphasize that Democrats’ clearest and strongest path to victory in 2020 runs through the upper Midwest -- and that Bernie Sanders is by far the best-positioned candidate to win these states and defeat Donald Trump," was a statement in the announcement.

"At rallies in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania -- three states that flipped and voted for Donald Trump in 2016 -- Sanders will deliver a message focused on fighting against unfair trade deals that undermine workers wages and enrich CEOs, rebuilding and strengthening unions and guaranteeing health care as a right to all with Medicare for All."

The itinerary is for April 12 in Wisconsin, April 13 in Michigan, and April 14 in Pennsylvania.
