Between meeting her lookalike and taking 50,000 selfies, participating in a roundtable on criminal justice reform and drawing record crowds at a campaign town hall, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren made the most of two days in the Twin Cities, with visits to the Black Hart of St. Paul and Minneapolis’ Hi-Lo Diner.
Warren, the senior senator from Massachusetts, delivered a rousing speech to Minnesota voters during a town hall on Monday at Macalester College in St. Paul. Twelve thousand people crowded the quads, bringing with them picnic dinners and blankets in true Minnesota style. Later that evening, the Warren campaign hosted a “Big Structural Afterparty” at the Black Hart, a neighborhood, queer and soccer bar in St. Paul’s Midway.

On Tuesday, Warren dropped by the kitchens of Hi-Lo Diner, stopping for a quick picture with staff after speaking about criminal justice reform with local nonprofit Better Futures Minnesota in Minneapolis. The 2020 presidential candidate is now back on the campaign trail and headed for the West Coast.
