Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's primary opponent will make two stops in Arizona to campaign on her behalf. 

According to a release from the Clinton campaign, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will attend early vote rallies in Flagstaff and Tucson on Tuesday. 

"Sanders will discuss Hillary Clinton's plan to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top," the campaign said.

Flagstaff Early Vote Rally - October 18, 2016 
Doors open: 1:00 p.m.
Event starts: 2:30 p.m.

Tucson Early Vote Rally - October 18, 2016
Doors open: 6:00 p.m.

The events' announcement comes on the heels of word Chelsea Clinton will attend a similar rally at Arizona State University on Wednesday.

The increased attention from a Democratic presidential campaign comes amid the possibility that Arizona could "go blue" for the first time. 

A poll by Emerson College earlier this month found Clinton with a slight edge over Trump, 44% to 42%. Also, just last week election prediction expert Nate Silver, of FiveThirtyEight, gave Clinton a 53% chance of winning Arizona for the first time since 1996, when the state went for Bill Clinton.
