MILWAUKEE (AP) — Four Democratic presidential candidates are planning to attend a town hall event on July 11 in Milwaukee.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former U.S. Housing Secretary Julian Castro and former Texas Rep. Beto O' Rourke are slated to appear at the two-hour event. It is organized by the League of United Latin American Citizens.

The town hall comes two weeks after a pair of presidential debates saw 20 of the Democratic candidates square off. It is also a year before the Democratic National Convention will be held in Milwaukee.

Wisconsin is seen as a key swing state in the 2020 election and several of the Democratic candidates have already made visits. President Donald Trump narrowly carried the state in 2016, breaking a string of Democratic wins dating to 1988.
