SPOKANE, Wash. -

Democratic candidate for president Bernie Sanders is in Spokane Sunday for a rally at the Spokane Convention Center. 

Sanders' Spokane stop follows the campaign's stops in the Seattle area Saturday. The event is free to the public, but RSVPs for the rally have already reached capacity according to the campaign's website. 

People started lining up outside the rally Sunday afternoon as early as 2:30 p.m. Doors for the rally aren't expected to open until 6 p.m. and Sanders isn't expected to speak until about 9 p.m. Supporters were in line holding signs and some supporters were phone banking for Sanders while they waited to get inside. One supporter our Katie Chen spoke with had pizza delivered to her spot in line so she wouldn't lose it.

The Convention Center expects about 10,000 people to show up Sunday.

Sanders' rally comes a day ahead of a rally for his opponent Hillary Clinton. President Bill Clinton will be in Spokane Monday afternoon to campaign for his wife at Spokane Falls Community College.

There are 118 Democratic delegates at stake in Washington, with 101 to be awarded proportionally based on the results of the caucuses which will be held March 26 in Washington.
    
The remaining 17 are technically unpledged party and elected leaders, though a majority of them - including Gov. Jay Inslee and the state's Congressional delegation - have already said they support Clinton.
