MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A presidential candidate is scheduled to hold his first rally in Minnesota Sunday morning.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent politician since 1979, is seeking the democratic nomination, and will likely try to pull support from liberals who are disillusioned with the Clintons.

Sen. Sanders will be hosting a town hall meeting Sunday morning at the Minneapolis American Indian Center on East Franklin Avenue. More than 3,000 people have already registered to attend the event on Sen. Sanders’ campaign website.
