Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and Democratic front-runner for president, will campaign in Minneapolis on Dec. 15. 

Clinton's campaign announced the event on Wednesday. The candidate "will lay out the case of her campaign and ask people to get directly involved," according to a press release. "She'll discuss the issues that keep Minnesotans up at night and how she'll address them as president."

The campaign did not release any other details of the Dec. 15 stop and did not identify where the event would be held. 

Minnesota's Democratic and Republican presidential caucuses are on March 1. Clinton's main competition is likely to be Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has attracted some support in Minnesota. But Clinton has largely locked down the state's Democratic establishment, lining up endorsements from more than 60 elected officials and other party leaders. 

Clinton's Dec. 15 visit will be the first by a Democratic candidate since the end of August, when Clinton, Sanders and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley were all in Minneapolis for a Democratic National Committee meeting. 

The last Republican candidate to visit was Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who made several Minnesota stops earlier this month.
