In the week leading up to the Nevada caucuses, Bernie Sanders will hold five rallies across the state, including events at University of Nevada campuses.

After wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, the Vermont Senator will begin a swing through the Silver State with a get out the early vote rally at Desert Pines High School in Las Vegas. That night, Sanders will attend the Clark County Democratic Party caucus gala at the Tropicana.

On Sunday, Sanders will hold a rally in Carson City, the Nevada state capital.

Sanders will visit college campuses on Tuesday, holding rallies at the University of Nevada in Reno from 11am, and Las Vegas from 2:30pm.

On Friday, the eve of the Nevada caucuses, Sanders will hold a final get out the vote rally at Springs Preserve Amphitheater in Las Vegas.

With no recent polling of likely voters in Nevada, it is difficult to get a sense of the current state of the race. However after winning a plurality of non white voters in both Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders’ campaign will be confident of its chances in the Silver State, which has a much more diverse population than the first two contests.

In FiveThirtyEight’s Democratic primary forecast, Sanders has the best chance of winning the most votes in Nevada, at 62 percent.

The Nevada caucuses will take place on Saturday 22 February.
