Movie star Ashley Judd is in Twin Cities for Get Out The Vote drive

She's supporting Elizabeth Warren.

With just days until Minnesotans take to the polls for the presidential primaries, a famous face was in the Twin Cities helping Elizabeth Warren on Saturday.

Ashley Judd, best known for movies including Heat, Kiss the Girls, and Double Jeopardy, has been helping Twin Cities Warren staff and volunteers at a "Get Out The Vote" event on Saturday.

It comes just a few days before Minnesota becomes one of 13 states to hold their primaries on Super Tuesday.

Warren is currently in third place in Minnesota, per the most recent polls, behind Minnesota's own Amy Klobuchar, who is followed by Bernie Sanders.

Judd's visit in Minnesota included a stop at Warren's Minnesota campaign HQ, followed by a visit to the Common Roots Cafe on Lyndale Avenue in Lowry Hill East.

On the Klobuchar side of the campaign, Minnesota's senior senator had Minnesota's junior senator, Sen. Tina Smith, campaigning on her behalf Saturday.
