Liz Watson, the Democratic candidate for Indiana's 9th Congressional District, will appear alongside Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, next month at a campaign rally on campus.

The rally, featuring the senator and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, will take place at 11 a.m. Oct. 19 in Dunn Meadow, Watson's campaign confirmed Thursday. 

Sanders last spoke on campus in April 2016, less than a week before he achieved a five-point upset in the Indiana primary. He would go on to lose the nomination to Hillary Clinton.
