MADISON — Bernie Sanders is returning to Wisconsin to lead a pair of campaign rallies for Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin and 1st District congressional candidate Randy Bryce.
The Vermont senator plans to hold the rallies on Saturday, part of a three-state swing that's taking him to Minnesota on Friday and Pennsylvania on Sunday. Sanders won the Wisconsin Democratic presidential primary in 2016 over eventual nominee Hillary Clinton.
Sanders is rallying with Baldwin in Eau Claire in western Wisconsin, a part of the state that's critical for Baldwin in her re-election bid.
Bryce is an iron worker from Caledonia is seeking to replace retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan in the southeast Wisconsin congressional district, which includes all of Racine County. He's being challenged by Janesville teacher Cathy Myers in the Democratic primary.
Sanders' rally for Bryce is scheduled to take place in Janesville.
