HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Both democratic presidential candidates were campaigning in Connecticut on Sunday.

Bernie Sanders' rally will be at the New Haven Green at 65 Church Street. Doors open at 4 p.m and the rally will start at 7 p.m. 

Sanders will discuss "a wide range of issues." He is expected to discuss "getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care," according to his campaign office. 

This will be his first time campaigning in Connecticut.

Hillary Clinton has been campaigning in the state since Thursday and spoke in New Haven yesterday.

Clinton spoke at the University of Bridgeport's Harvey Hubbell Gymnasium on Sunday afternoon. Hundreds showed up at the rally, including both U.S. senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy.

She spoke about raising income for families and bridging the wage gap.

Clinton said she wants to do more to help small businesses around the country, and said she supports Gov. Dannel Malloy's second chance program.

She told her supporters to not be intimidated by the gun lobby.

At an event in New Haven on Saturday, Clinton said, "The equal pay issue isn't a woman's issue. It's a family issue, it's a fairness issue and frankly it's an economic issue. Because we have to get incomes raised we need to give more people the chance to get out in the economy and more choices that are best for families."
