COLUMBUS, Ohio — Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will appear at an event in Ohio on March 13, the weekend before the state’s critical primary election.

According to a release from the Ohio Democratic Party, the two will speak at the 2016 ODP Legacy Dinner at the Columbus Convention Center.

“Ohio will once again be the center of the political universe in 2016, and we’re thrilled that both of our Democratic candidates will be able to address Ohio voters in person as they are heading to the polls for the presidential primary,” Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper said in a release. “Ohio Democrats helped to win the White House for President Obama twice, and we’re already building the infrastructure to send a Democrat back to the White House, help retake the U.S. Senate and boost Democratic candidates up and down the ticket this fall.”
