LAS VEGAS (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is opening five more Nevada campaign offices, including one near the UNLV campus.

The campaign announced the new locations Tuesday and scheduled parties this week for each spot.

The Vermont senator has attracted large crowds to his speeches in Nevada, particularly among the college crowd. The Democratic socialist has said he wants to raise taxes on corporations to finance tuition-free college across the country.

The Sanders campaign will also have new locations in Henderson, Reno, North Las Vegas and northeast Las Vegas. It already occupies a space in western Las Vegas.

Campaign officials have said they plan to open as many as 12 offices and bring on anywhere from 25-100 staffers. The Sanders campaign started hiring Nevada staff this fall, months after Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
