The rally's date comes two days ahead of Super Tuesday, which this year will include 14 state primaries and the American Samoa caucuses. Among the state primaries set for March 3 are California, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and more. Speaking after his Nevada caucus victory earlier this month, Sanders touted what he describes as his campaign's unique ability to inspire unity.
"We are bringing our people together," Sanders said. "In Nevada we have just brought together a multigenerational, multiracial coalition which is not only going to win in Nevada, it’s going to sweep this country."
The always politically-tuned-in Public Enemy, meanwhile, released their most recent album Nothing Is Quick in the Desert back in 2017. Previous artists to have thrown their support behind Sanders include Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver, Soccer Mommy, The Strokes, Cardi B, Mannequin Pussy, and many more.
