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.
