LORDSTOWN

Sunday’s event with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a presidential candidate, at Lordstown High School will be open to the public.

Sanders will visit battleground states in the Midwest on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday .

Sanders will have allies in Madison, Wisc., Warren, Mich. and Pittsburgh, Pa. He will also meet with community members in Gary, Ind., and union workers in Coopersville, Michigan, and Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

In Lordstown, Sanders will sit down with American federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, experts and workers in the community to discuss everything from plant closures to schools.

Sanders will end the swing with a stop in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to participate in a town hall hosted by FOX News.

The tour will emphasize that Democrats’ clearest and strongest path to victory in 2020 runs through the upper Midwest. 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.
