On Wednesday, events are planned at the Lehi offices of Silicon Slopes, a nonprofit organization that represents Utah's technology sector, and the National Ability Center in Park City that provides adaptive outdoor recreation opportunities.
Schultz's visit follows a campaign swing by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic candidate for president. Warren held a media event in Big Cottonwood Canyon and a rally at The Depot in downtown Salt Lake City.
Earlier this year, another Democratic presidential candidate, Julian Castro, a former secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, spoke at the University of Utah.
