U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, considered a Democratic star, will visit Minnesota in March to raise campaign funds for U.S. Sen. Al Franken and the DFL Party.

Warren, who was occasionally mentioned as a possible 2016 presidential candidate, will be the keynote speaker at the DFL's Humphrey-Mondale fundraiser in March. That dinner is closed to the press, said DFL spokeswoman Ellen Perrault.

Warren, of Massachusetts, will also campaign for Franken, who is up for re-election this year. The two have campaigned together and raised money for each other before over the years.

Tickets to the dinner will run between $125 for general admission to $2,500 for special access, including a photo with Warren.

Franken's campaign said she will attend several events with the Minnesota senator on March 29.

The visit gives the two Minnesota parties a match set of potential 2016 candidates. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will raise money for the Republican Party on Feb. 19 at one of their premiere fundraising dinners.

Updated: Sen. Warren made clear last month she was not running for president. This post has been updated to reflect that and include the cost of tickets.
