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.
Rep. Erik Paulsen called for an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election following President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, going further than many GOP lawmakers in the aftermath of a move that has roiled the Capitol over the last day.
