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.
Hillary Clinton brought a close to the presidential primary season with a win in the nation's capital and a meeting with dispatched rival Bernie Sanders, hoping to set a tone of Democratic unity heading into next month's party convention in Philadelphia.
Bernie Sanders is expected to spend his final primary night meeting with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton — not before thousands of cheering supporters — as his campaign seeks to influence Clinton's agenda against Republican Donald Trump.
