SAN DIEGO — The remaining active Republican candidate, businessman Donald Trump, is expected to campaign in San Diego next week.

Trump’s visit will be at San Diego Convention Center at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 27.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and former President Bill Clinton will speak at separate rallies this weekend in San Diego.

Sanders will hold two rallies as he brings his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination back to the San Diego area, his campaign announced Wednesday.

Sanders, who has remained in the race even though former first lady Hillary Clinton has a commanding lead in delegates, is scheduled to speak at Kimball Park in National City on Saturday evening.

The 7:30 p.m. event is free and open to the public, with admittance beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Admission will be first come, first served, but the public is encouraged to fill out an online RSVP form.

Sanders is also scheduled to speak at Rancho Buena Vista High School Stadium in Vista on Sunday afternoon.

The 2 p.m. event is free and open to the public, with admittance beginning at 11 a.m.

The public is encouraged to fill out an online RSVP form.

Sanders, who’s coming off a victory in the Oregon primary and a close loss to Clinton in Kentucky, is hopeful that a victory in California’s June 7 primary election will strengthen his position in this summer’s Democratic convention.

According to the campaign, Sanders will speak about getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition- free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care.

Due to security concerns, attendees should not bring bags, and carry only small personal items, such as keys and cell phones. Weapons, sharp objects, chairs, signs, banners and sticks will not be permitted.

An estimated 12,000 people attended a Sanders rally at the San Diego Convention Center in March.

Former President Bill Clinton will also be in the area for a rally on Saturday morning and then a private fundraiser at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe at 1 p.m.

Clinton’s public rally Saturday is free and will be held at Bonita Vista High School in  Chula Vista at 11:30 a.m.  The doors will open at 10:30 a.m.

The public is encouraged to fill out an online RSVP form.

This will be the former president’s second visit to San Diego this month. Clinton campaigned on his wife’s behalf in Balboa Park two weeks ago.

Clinton supporters opened a campaign office for the former New York senator and secretary of state in downtown San Diego on Tuesday.

Hillary Clinton is expected to travel to the Golden State on Wednesday, May 25.  The campaign release did not reveal where and when she would be visiting.
