Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will headline a rally at Sacramento’s Bonney Field late Monday afternoon, his campaign announced Saturday.
The rally at the home pitch of the Sacramento Republic FC is free, although people are encouraged to make reservations through the campaign’s website. Doors open at 5 p.m. Bonney Field is at Cal Expo, 1600 Exposition Blvd.
Sanders also announced a rally to be held 7 a.m. Tuesday at Stockton’s Weber Point Event Center, 221 N. Center St.
Monday is the first day of mail voting for the state’s June 7 primary election. Despite facing slim odds of overtaking Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in total delegates, Sanders has said he will stay in the race through next month’s primaries in California and other states, as well as the District of Columbia.
Sanders has pointed to national polls showing he would do better against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. Some backers of the Vermont senator, meanwhile, have ruled out supporting the more moderate Clinton.
Clinton campaigned in Los Angeles and Oakland last week, focusing her attacks on Trump but also criticizing some of Sanders’ proposals.
