Bernie Sanders is the latest presidential candidate to announce a campaign stop in the Ocean State. The Vermont Senator and Democratic hopeful will hold a rally at Roger Williams Park on Sunday.
Sanders has two campaign offices in Rhode Island; one in Providence and another in South County. An early poll by the Taubman Center at Brown University show Sanders leading among Rhode Island voters, but a subsequent poll found former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ahead.
While many political analysts believe Clinton will win Rhode Island, a robust grassroots effort has sprung up around Sanders in the Ocean State.
Hillary Clinton and Republican John Kasich will be in Rhode Island on Saturday. Officials with the Trump campaign say a visit by the Republican frontrunner is unlikely.
