BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump will have a packed house when he speaks this week in the backyard of second-place Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.

Trump has scheduled a rally at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington at 7 p.m. Thursday. According to his website, tickets are no longer available to the free event at the center’s 1,400-seat main stage.

Sanders, a U.S. senator representing Vermont, was mayor of Burlington in the 1980s.

Sue Minter, a Democratic candidate for Vermont governor, is asking residents to protest Trump’s visit by donating time, money or both to a worthy cause on Thursday.

She says she’s calling for the protest because of what she calls Trump’s “intolerant, divisive rhetoric.”
