SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Sen. Bernie Sanders is coming to New Mexico to hold public rallies at a community college in Santa Fe and a convention hall in Albuquerque.

The Democratic presidential candidate will speak Friday at Santa Fe Community College at 3 p.m. and at the Albuquerque Convention Center at 5 p.m., campaign organizers announced Tuesday.

They said Sanders plans to discuss a range of issues including his plans for free college tuition, combatting climate change and ensuring universal health care.

Despite trailing Hillary Clinton in the delegate count, Sanders has vowed to stay in the race until the final primary June 7 that includes New Mexico and California.

Sanders would be the first presidential candidate to publicly campaign in New Mexico.

On Wednesday the Vermont senator is scheduled to hold two events in California. At 1 p.m. he’ll speak at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds in San Jose. Then at 4 p.m. Sanders will hold a rally along the waterfront in Vallejo.
