(KNSI) - Democratic U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren is bringing her campaign to Minnesota for the first time.
Warren will hold a town hall Monday, August 19 at 6:15 p.m. the Leonard Center Field House at Macalester College in St. Paul.
In a recent study by Real Clear Politics, Warren is polling behind former Vice President Joe Biden, and just ahead of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Warren is the fourth presidential hopeful to visit the state this election cycle. Former U.S. Representative Beto O'Rourke, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and entrepreneur Andrew Yang have visited the Twin Cities earlier this year. Minnesota's own Senator Amy Klobuchar, who is also seeking the 2020 nomination has visited the state several times as well.
Minnesota is switching from a caucusing system to a primary vote. That will take place on Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
