COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is reaching out to Bernie Sanders’ supporters in Colorado.

During a rally Sunday evening at the University of Colorado in Boulder attended by about 150 people, Stein promised to forgive their student loan debt if she was elected. The Daily Camera reported she told the crowd that her campaign has been called “Bernie on steroids.”

Stein also spoke about banning fracking and phasing out fossil fuels and nuclear power plants by 2030 and said she wants to shut down the country’s “profiteering weapons industry.”

Stein also campaigned in Fort Collins, Colorado Springs and Denver over the weekend.
