  With primary elections taking place in other states, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is heading to West Virginia for a rally Tuesday.

The U.S. senator from Vermont will speak in Huntington at 8:30 at Big Sandy Superstore Arena.

At stake today are 384 delegates in primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

His Democratic competition, Hillary Clinton, can't win enough delegates in today’s primaries to knock Sanders out officially. But she can erase any lingering doubts that she will soon be the nominee.

West Virginia's primary election is May 10.
