CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the progressive firebrand who is riling up Democratic crowds across the country, is heading back to New Hampshire for a two-day campaign swing.

Sanders, a self-described democratic-socialist who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, will kick off his visit to the first primary state on Sunday in Salem before heading to the North Country. On Monday, he’s set to host town halls in Conway, Berlin and Littleton.

Although former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton remains the front-runner in the Democratic primary contest, Sanders has emerged as a legitimate threat, often drawing much larger crowds that Clinton. As billionaire businessman Donald Trump has done on the right, Sanders has tapped into voters’ anger over the status quo in Washington.
