Amy Klobuchar has canceled a rally in St. Louis Park on Sunday evening after protesters disrupted the event and took to the stage.
With Klobuchar needing a big Super Tuesday to keep her presidential campaign alive, her return to Minnesota hasn't gone smoothly as protesters made their voices heard at the event at St. Louis Park High School.
Groups including Black Lives Matter are calling for justice in the case of Myon Burrell, who was prosecuted when Klobuchar was the Hennepin County Attorney for the murder of 11-year-old Tyesha Edwards in 2002.
A recent investigation by the Associated Press says there was evidence to suggest Burrell's innocence that wasn't followed up on by investigators, and new evidence that claims he wasn't at the scene of the shooting.
Protesters were chanting "free Myon" and "Klobuchar has got to go" as they took over the stage and refused to leave.
At around 8:40 p.m., 40 minutes after the event was due to start, it was announced that the rally had been canceled.
Klobuchar is facing increasing pressure to abandon her presidential bid after a poor showing in South Carolina.
This pressure heightened considerably on Sunday afternoon when fellow moderate Democrat, Pete Buttigieg, who has performed better than the Minnesota senator, announced he was ending his campaign.
Klobuchar is the favorite to win Minnesota on Super Tuesday, with the most recent poll putting her 6 points ahead of Bernie Sanders.
