HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - The race for the White House is coming through Virginia this weekend.

Several of the Democratic candidates are making sure Hampton Roads gets their attention.

On Saturday, Senator Bernie Sanders will be campaigning at the Virginia Wesleyan University Convocation Hall.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar was originally slated to be in Norfolk at the Elation Brewing Company on Colley Avenue in Norfolk, but she canceled her planned visit Friday evening. Instead, her husband, John Bessler, will be there, her staff told News 3. Doors open at 4:15 p.m., and the event starts at 5 p.m.

She also has stops in Richmond and Charlotte, North Carolina, that same day.

On Sunday, former Vice President Joe Biden is set to be in Norfolk for a community event. His event is going to be held at Booker T. Washington High School.

Just two days ago, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard held a town hall meeting in Virginia Beach, and earlier this month, Mike Bloomberg was in Hampton Roads.

Bloomberg spoke in front of supporters at the Half Moone Cruise and celebration center in Norfolk.

These visits all lead up to next week's big Super Tuesday. Fourteen states, including Virginia and North Carolina, will head to the polls - more than 1,300 delegates are up for grabs. Virginia has 124 and North Carolina has 122.
