Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders made a campaign stop at Pitt’s Fitzgerald Field House on Monday, just one day before the state’s primary.

Midday on Monday, Sanders spoke to a crowd of mostly college students about income inequality, student debt and environmental issues, including fracking and the fossil fuel industry. Sanders last visited Pittsburgh on March 31, when he held a rally Downtown. His rally this week follows visits from former President Bill Clinton and rival Hillary Clinton, as well as Republican candidates John Kasich and Donald Trump.
