Former President Bill Clinton will visit Minneapolis next week for a rally in support of Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Mark Dayton.

Clinton will headline an Oct. 10 grassroots early voting and get-out-the-vote event at Northrop Auditorium on the University of Minnesota campus.

The Minnesota DFL party made the announcement Thursday, a day after Franken and Dayton faced off with their Republican candidates in their first debates. Franken is challenged by Sunfish Lake businessman Mike McFadden, while Dayton is running for re-election against Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson.
