GRAND FORKS -- There are less than two weeks before North Dakota Democrats choose who they want to face Donald Trump in the presidential race, and Bernie Sanders is doing everything he can to win the state's delegates, including opening a campaign office in Grand Forks.

The campaign for the Vermont senator opened an office Saturday at 421 DeMers Ave. The office will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day through the North Dakota Democratic caucus, which is June 7.

"It's crunch time," volunteer Oren Howe said. "We're trying to get the word out."

The office will promote Sanders in the Grand Forks area and will inform residents on where they can vote.

Anyone who wishes to volunteer should visit the office, Howe said. "Whoever walks in is welcome to come in and volunteer," he added.
