Bernie Sanders will hold four campaign rallies in Texas this weekend, announcing additional rallies in Houston and Austin.

Sanders’ campaign had earlier this week announced rallies in El Paso and San Antonio for Saturday.

On Sunday, Sanders will also hold rallies in Houston and Austin. The University of Houston will host the first rally of the day, scheduled to kick off at 1pm. That evening, Sanders will travel to Austin for a 5pm rally at Vic Mathias Shores.

Last week, more than 5,000 attended Sanders’ campaign rally in Mesquite. The Vermont Senator also held a rally in Dallas, drawing a similar sized crowd.

Activist and Sanders campaign surrogate Shaun King will also campaign for the Vermont Senator in the state, holding a criminal justice reform town hall in Houston on Friday, and a meet and greet happy hour in Dallas.

Texas Tribune poll released last week shows Sanders doubling his support in the Lone Star State. His campaign has opened five field offices across Texas.
