Ahead of six critical primaries on Tuesday, Bernie Sanders will appear on four Sunday morning shows this weekend, his campaign has announced.

Sanders’ communications director Mike Casca told reporters the Vermont Senator will appear on ABC This Week, CNN State of the Union, Fox News Sunday and NBC Meet the Press.

The blitz comes as Sanders’ primary opponent Joe Biden faces criticism for a light campaign schedule. The former vice president spoke at a rally in St Louis, Missouri for just seven minutes on Saturday.

In contrast, Sanders was scheduled to appear at three public events across two states on Saturday, with each speaking engagement extending for close to an hour, according to campaign manager Faiz Shakir.

Following his appearance on the Sunday morning programs, Sanders will hold campaign rallies in Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
