Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were in South Carolina Tuesday for a forum hosted by CNN ahead of the Democratic primary on Saturday.

But both campaigns are ramping up their efforts ahead of the Oklahoma primary next week.

“I’m going to do everything I can to make sure every woman in every job gets paid the same as the men who are doing that job,” Hillary Clinton said in a new ad that began airing in Oklahoma City and Tulsa on Tuesday.

Clinton’s volunteers went door to door in the metro.

Bernie Sanders supporters phone banked Tuesday in Oklahoma City. He also made a campaign stop in Norfolk Virginia.

“It is not acceptable that corporate America or Wall Street or the corporate media control what goes on in our country,” he said. “And that means we need to radically rethink the way we do politics.”

Sanders is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Tulsa at the Cox Business Center.
