Former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is to make his second campaign of the year on Oct. 6. This time, he will be campaigning for his opponent in the primary, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sanders campaigned against her in a March 2 rally called “A Future to Believe In.”

According to a release from the Clinton campaign, Sanders this time will say “let’s raise the minimum wage to a living wage, let’s combat climate change and move to sustainable energy, let’s make public colleges and universities tuition free, let’s end a broken criminal justice system.”

According to the Clinton campaign, Sanders will also contrast Clinton’s economic plan with one by Republican Donald Trump, “which would benefit himself and other millionaires and billionaires.”

Thursday’s MSU rally is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. at Adams Field, 295 West Circle Drive, with doors opening at 2:45 p.m.

Sanders’ Michigan swing will include stops in Dearborn, Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids.

At his March 2 MSU rally, shortly before the primary, Sanders criticized Clinton’s use of PACs to gather campaign money and her trade policies.
