Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will make a personal push for votes in Tuesday’s Delaware primary this weekend.  

The Sanders campaign says the Vermont senator will hold a rally in Wilmington Saturday.  It’s scheduled for  the Chase Center on the Wilmington Riverfront.   It is free an open to the public with doors opening at 1 pm. 

The only poll of Delaware voters on their primary preferences found Sanders trailing Hillary Clinton by a 45-38 percent margin among likely voters with 17 percent saying they’re unsure how they’ll vote Tuesday.

Sanders is the second candidate to campaign in the First State ahead of the primary. Donald Trump is in Harrington Friday afternoon for a rally at the Delaware State Fairgrounds. Trump was ahead in the only poll of Delaware voters with 55 percent support from likely voters.
