TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Bernie Sanders is making a campaign stop in Tucson for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
 
Sanders was in Tucson back in March when he was running against Clinton.
 
His message is that people should get out and vote to defeat Donald Trump and make Clinton our next president.
 
In the past few days, Sanders has been in New Mexico and Colorado.
 
Clinton aides believe Sanders can boost turnout with young people.
 
 
Sanders is expected to talk about Clinton's plan for the economy, raising the minimum wage, climate change, and making public colleges tuition-free. Free tuition was something very important to his campaign when he was running.
 
Earlier today in Flagstaff, Sanders talked about his proposal with Clinton to give free higher education to families to middle-class families making less than $125,000 and to reduce debt.
 
Sanders is expected to take the stage on the U of A mall at 7 p.m.
 
Congressman Raul Grijalva is expected to join him.
