Bernie Sanders is campaigning across Michigan this weekend, the state with most delegates available in next Tuesday's crucial presidential primary elections.


Sanders is fighting to regain momentum lost to Joe Biden after the Super Tuesday primaries.



Bernie Sanders' surprise win over Hillary Clinton in Michigan’s primary four years ago jump started his campaign.


Now Sanders again enters Michigan trailing a rival, this time Joe Biden.


But Sanders says working families in Michigan know him and his record far better this time around. 


“They know that I did everything that I could to defeat disastrous trade agreements like NAFTA and Joe Biden supported those agreements which ended up costing us millions of good-paying jobs and decimated areas like Detroit, Michigan,” Sanders says.


While Sanders is focusing on Michigan, Biden is campaigning in other states that are holding primaries next week and waiting until the day before the election on Tuesday to hold events in Michigan.
