Bernie Sanders plans presidential campaign rally in Pittsburgh

Presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will have a campaign rally Sunday in Pittsburgh.

His campaign announced Sanders will stop at Schenley Plaza on Forbes Avenue in North Oakland in his bid to win the Democratic nomination for president in the 2020 primary election. The rally will start at 5 p.m., and it is free and open to the public.

Sanders announced his candidacy less than two months ago and has surpassed his rivals in early fundraising, the Associated Press reported. He lost the 2016 party nomination to Hillary Clinton.

His campaign plans to visit battleground states late this week — Wisconsin on Friday and Michigan on Saturday before the Pittsburgh stop. He will make additional visits in Indiana and Ohio.

Sanders will talk about strengthening unions, guaranteeing health care and fighting against unfair trade deals.

Those who want to attend the Pittsburgh event will be permitted on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are not required, but RSVPs are encouraged.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
