Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will hold two events in New Hampshire on Labor Day, a schedule that only intensifies speculation that he’ll make another bid for the White House in 2020.

Sanders will speak first at a breakfast in Manchester for New Hampshire’s AFL-CIO, an event that requires a $30 donation, his campaign arm announced on Thursday. 

The senator will then head to a rally in Concord that is hosted by Rights and Democracy New Hampshire and is open to the public. Sanders will end the day with two other events in his home state of Vermont.

{mosads}An associate of Sanders, who defeated Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary by a double-digit margin, said last month that the senator is leaving the door open to another run.

Sanders is not the first possible 2020 hopeful to head to the Granite State this month.

Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.), who has already announced his candidacy for 2020, visited New Hampshire this week, as did Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D), who campaigned with Manchester mayoral candidate Joyce Craig. 

WMUR reported Thursday that former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander (D) will also visit New Hampshire on Labor Day.
