CANTON, Ohio (AP) – Hillary Clinton’s Democratic presidential campaign will get help this weekend in swing state Ohio from two surrogates aiming to appeal to younger voters.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont will open a weekend organizing push in Canton on Saturday morning before speaking to campus audiences in the Kent and Akron areas. No other details have been released.

Millennials concerned about college debt and their futures provided Sanders with strong support during his presidential primary bid.

Clinton’s campaign says Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will emphasize Clinton’s plans for community college and in-state public university tuition breaks this weekend. Warren will campaign at Ohio State University on Saturday and in Cleveland on Sunday.

Republican Donald Trump’s latest Ohio campaign stop was in Canton on Wednesday.
