Elizabeth Warren's First Campaign Event In Minnesota Draws Her Biggest Crowd Yet (12,000 people)

Last edited Tue Aug 20, 2019, 05:02 AM - Edit history (2)



ST. PAUL, Minn. ― Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) on Monday drew in the largest crowd of her presidential campaign tour yet, attracting thousands of energized supporters to her town hall at Macalester College.

“Hello, Minnesota!” the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful shouted as she took the stage Monday evening. “Dang, it is good to be here.”

Though the event was billed as a town hall, it more closely resembled a rally once Warren announced the audience Q&A portion of the event would be scrapped given the massive turnout. Her campaign estimated 12,000 people were in attendance.

A volunteer with the grassroots organizing group Minnesota for Warren told HuffPost that the event was scheduled to be held in the college’s field house but was moved outside given the large number of people who RSVP’d.

...The town hall held at the private liberal arts college in St. Paul marked her first campaign event in Minnesota. She’s the fourth Democratic presidential candidate (outside of Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota) to campaign in the North Star State.

“I hear her say, ‘I’ve got a plan for that,’ and she does,” said Nancy Docken, a 75-year-old St. Paul resident. “And she not only has a plan, but it’s thought out beyond just the first sketch of the idea ― there’s depth to it.”

8. Warren stood for three hours and 2,500 selfies after the rally

Her campaign appears poised to capitalize on the enthusiasm. Attendees at Monday's rally texted the campaign to gain entrance, helping Warren build her list of supporters and potential small-dollar donors. She did not let the crowd size deter her from her standing promise to take a selfie with supporters who wait in line for one. The wait on Monday was long. Warren's campaign says she took 2,500 photos after the rally, sticking around for nearly three hours.
