Sanders will speak at two rallies in Detroit and Ypsilanti on Sunday, promoting the former Detroit health director’s support for a state-level Medicare for All program, promise of free college tuition for most state residents, and pledge to invest in renewable energy and green jobs.

Sanders is the only U.S. senator who’s endorsed El-Sayed ahead of the August 7 primary election. He has also won the support of numerous progressive groups and leaders including the Working Families Party, Justice Democrats, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), filmmaker and Michigan native Michael Moore, journalist Shaun King, and Medicare for All advocate Ady Barkan.

Last weekend, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won her own Democratic primary in New York in June with a surprise defeat of a centrist Democrat, also rallied for El-Sayed at five well-attended events, where widespread support for his bold progressive platform was palpable.
