About 12,000 people showed up at the Democratic presidential hopeful’s town hall at Macalester College in St. Paul, according to her campaign.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) on Monday drew what her campaign said was the largest crowd of her presidential campaign tour yet, attracting thousands of energized supporters to her town hall at Macalester College.
“Hello, Minnesota!” the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful shouted as she took the stage Monday evening. “Dang, it is good to be here.”
Though the event was billed as a town hall, it more closely resembled a rally once Warren announced the audience Q&A portion of the event would be scrapped given the massive turnout. Her campaign estimated 12,000 people were in attendance.
A volunteer with the grassroots organizing group Minnesota for Warren told HuffPost that the event was scheduled to be held in the college’s field house but was moved outside given the large number of people who RSVP’d.
