ST. PAUL — Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will bring her 2020 presidential campaign to Minnesota for the first time next week.
The Massachusetts senator will hold a town hall at 6:15 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19, at the Leonard Center Field House at Macalester College in St. Paul.
Aside from Minnesota’s own U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Warren is the fourth — and most prominent — presidential hopeful to visit the state this election cycle.
Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; and entrepreneur Andrew Yang visited the Twin Cities earlier this year.
Warren has gained momentum over the summer and is now polling in second place behind former Vice President Joe Biden, according to an average of national polls compiled by RealClearPolitics.
Minnesota’s presidential nomination primary will take place March 3.
