SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Bernie Sanders is adding a third rally to his swing through New Mexico to drum up support ahead of a June 7 presidential primary vote.

The Vermont senator and Democratic presidential hopeful announced Thursday a rally at an elementary school in the largely Hispanic town of Vado between Las Cruces and El Paso, Texas.

Pollsters expect Hispanics will account for at least half of Democratic primary voters in New Mexico.

Sanders is scheduled to speak Friday to audiences at a community college in Santa Fe and a convention hall in Albuquerque. He is the first presidential candidate to visit New Mexico.

Sanders trails in the delegate count but has vowed to stay in the race through the final primary date that includes New Mexico and California.
