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.
Robby Mook, national campaign manager for Hillary Clinton's White House bid, remained bullish on the 2016 campaign during a Star Tribune interview, despite the former Secretary of State's inauspicious start to the race, and the potential candidacy of Vice President Joe Biden.
