OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders Plans to visit Oklahoma this weekend, including campaign stops in Norman and at a Comanche Nation powwow outside of Lawton.

Sanders will hold a rally at 3 p.m. Sunday in Norman's Reaves Park, adjacent to the University of Oklahoma campus.
Sanders will then travel to Lawton for the 28th Annual Comanche Nation Fair Powwow, where he is expected to participate in the event's "grand entry" and speak to the crowd at about 7 p.m.
Oklahoma votes next year as part of "Super Tuesday" on March 3.
