ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is returning to Minnesota this week.

Sanders’ campaign says he is scheduled to host a rally Friday in Hibbing, on northern Minnesota’s Iron Range. Sanders will speak about his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care.

Sanders’ appearance comes days before Super Tuesday. Minnesota is one of 12 states casting votes for presidential hopefuls on March 1.

Sanders was in Minnesota earlier this month. He spoke at a forum in north Minneapolis about issues facing black residents. Sanders and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton also attended a major party fundraiser in St. Paul that evening.

On the Republican side, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio hosted a rally in Minneapolis this week.
