BOULDER, Colo. — Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren will be in Denver on Sunday and Monday to campaign on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

The first event will take place at the Tivoli Student Union on the Auraria campus at 7 p.m. Sunday.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP.

On Monday, Sanders will visit the University of Colorado in Boulder and Colorado State University in Fort Collins to advocate for Amendment 69.

Sanders will speak at CSU in the University Lory Student Center at 2 p.m. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. The event is open to the public and RSVPs are available online.  

After the CSU rally, the former Democratic Party nominee for president will speak for free from 5-7 p.m. at Farrand Field in Boulder, CU Boulder said.

Gates for the event will open at 4 p.m. Tickets are not required. The event will be first-come, first-served.

Sanders is said to primarily address Amendment 69, a statewide ballot initiative that would establish Colorado Care, a single-payer government-run health insurer that would be the first of its kind in the country.

Under the plan, private health insurance would likely cease to exist in the state. Instead, a 21-member elected board would administer the coverage on behalf of the government.
