Bernie Sanders to hold rally in Minnesota the day before Super Tuesday

Sanders is polling well in Minnesota ahead of the crucial vote.

Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders will hold a rally in St. Paul the day before voters take to the polls on Super Tuesday.

Minnesota is one of 14 states holding primaries on Super Tuesday, Mar. 3, and Sanders is banking on a decent performance in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

He will hold a rally at the Saint Paul RiverCentre at 7 p.m. on Monday, Mar. 2, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.

The event is free to attend, with entry provided on a "first come, first served" basis.

The rally will feature a music performance by Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats.

Sanders is polling second in Minnesota behind Sen. Amy Klobuchar in her home state, with a Star Tribune/MPR poll released at the weekend putting him 6 points behind Klobuchar, who has 29 percent of likely voters.

In third place is Elizabeth Warren, polling at 11 percent.

Sanders' campaign also announced it would be adding two pre-Super Tuesday events in Massachusetts, Warren's home state, suggesting he's planning on beating his Democratic rivals in their own back yards.

Sanders was last in Minnesota on Nov. 3, when he held a rally at the University of Minnesota.
