AMES, Iowa -- It's the college tour: 2016 and Donald Trump's campaign hopes it finds more support with younger voters.

Tuesday, Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., campaigned at rallies at Iowa State and the University of Northern Iowa.

He praised Bernie Sanders, the Socialist-turned-Democratic presidential candidate, who surprised many by pushing Hillary Clinton for months for the nomination. Much of Sanders' success came from younger voters and from those who previously felt a disconnect with modern politicians.

"This is our last chance. It's our last chance," Trump Jr. told about 75 students at ISU's Memorial Union, "This election from day one has been about change. Even during the primary, it's why you had the success of Bernie Sanders."

Trump Jr. continued his pitch by calling out what he said was "corruption" in the Democratic primary process. Leaked emails during the campaign eventually cost Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job. Critics, including Sanders supporters, contend those emails showed the DNC's bias toward Clinton during the primary.

Donna Brazile, a longtime Democratic consultant, replaced Brazile. But more leaked emails cost Brazile her job as a paid contributor to CNN. Those emails showed Brazile helped pass along questions from a CNN town hall to Clinton before the event took place.

Trump's campaign could use inroads with younger voters. Polls have generally shown he doesn't have the appeal with that younger demographic that Clinton does now.
