Sen. Bernie Sanders is expected to join Democratic gubernatorial candidate David Garcia for two rallies aimed at encouraging college students to vote.

Sanders will join Garcia for a 10 a.m. Tuesday appearance at the University of Arizona in Tucson, then at 5 p.m. at Arizona State University in Tempe.
More information about the rallies is available on Garcia's campaign website. Garcia, an education professor at ASU, faces Republican Gov. Doug Ducey in the Nov. 6 election.
The Vermont senator is the longest-serving independent in congressional history. The self-described progressive ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 2016.
