    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) pauses while speaking during a campaign event at Penn State in University Park, Pennsylvania, ahead of the New York primary results on Tuesday, April 19, 2016. Despite a strong showing, Sanders did not win enough votes to earn a majority of New York's delegates.

    The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign has reached out to officials in New Haven about holding a campaign rally on the New Haven Green, according to the mayor's office.

    Officials from the mayor’s office said the Sanders campaign reached out and the city provided the campaign with information on costs, as well as additional information, but the Sanders campaign has not yet made any additional plans and no permit was issued.

    Grotheer said the campaign is also considering other venues.

    A statement from the Sanders campaign said they have not given out any infrmation about events for the weekend in any state.

    "The schedule is presently being ironed out and our scheduling team is still considering a number of options to pull together the most robust and strategic agenda," the emailed statement said.
