OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and former President Bill Clinton both will be returning to Oklahoma City for campaign events ahead of Tuesday’s presidential primary election.

Sanders’ campaign announced Friday the U.S. senator from Vermont planned to speak at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Cox Convention Center arena in downtown Oklahoma City. That stop comes on the heels of a Sanders rally in Tulsa on Wednesday that drew nearly 7,000 people.

Also, Hillary Clinton’s campaign said Friday that Bill Clinton will hold get-out-the-vote events Saturday in Edmond and Tulsa.

Republican presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Donald Trump hosted events in Oklahoma City on Friday, while Ted Cruz planned a swing through Oklahoma on Sunday with stops in Lawton, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
