TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will host a rally at the Tucson Convention Center on Friday, March 18.

Sanders is expected to discuss a wide range of issues, including getting big money out of politics, tuition-free education, climate change and universal health care.

Sanders' visit comes days before the Arizona Presidential Preference election on Tuesday, March 22.

Friday's event will begin at 7:30 p.m. but doors at TCC, 260 S. Church Ave, will open at 4:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged as admission is first come, first served.

Sanders held a rally in Tucson in October, drawing 11,000 to Reid Park.
