A little over three weeks now until Michigan's presidential primary, and the candidates are targeting the great lakes state.

Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican John Kasich will rally here Monday, in what will be Sanders' first campaign trip to Michigan.

The Senator from Vermont is planning two rallies, one at Eastern Michigan University, and a second one at Union Hall in Dearborn.

The rally at Eastern is open to the public.

The democratic candidate, who is trying to beat Hillary Clinton for the nomination, is expected to discuss his free college tuition plan.

Doors open for Sanders' rally at 12:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, John Kasich will stump in Michigan for the next two days.

He will first hold a town hall at Grand Valley State on Monday morning, later he heads to East Lansing, to Michigan State University for a rally at 3:30 p.m.

Kasich has an event tomorrow in Livonia. The Ohio governor's campaign is picking up momentum after he finished in second place in the New Hampshire primary.

Kasich's event will be held at the MSU Student Union, in the Lake Huron room. Doors open at 3:00 p.m.
