CINCINNATI -- Former Democratic presidential hopeful, Sen. Bernie Sanders, will campaign in Ohio this week for nominee Hillary Clinton -- including a stop in Cincinnati on Thursday, Nov. 3, the Clinton campaign announced Monday.

According to a news release, Sanders is expected to focus on Clinton's economic plan, specifically how it will address the minimum wage and education costs.

The event is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at the University of Cincinnati's Tangeman University Center Great Hall. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Sanders' visit adds to a growing list of campaign events scheduled by the Clinton campaign in the battleground state, as the fierce presidential race enters the homestretch: Former President Bill Clinton addressed supporters in Forest Park over the weekend, and Hillary was scheduled to hold a rally at Smale Park Monday evening.

President Barack Obama also visited Columbus Tuesday, following another Columbus visit earlier this month.

Sanders' event will come on the heels of visits from both former President Bill Clinton Saturday in Forest Park and from Hillary herself, who was scheduled to hold a rally at Smale Park Monday evening.

People interested in attending Thursday were asked to RSVP here.
