Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton will return to Minnesota next month for a campaign stop.

MPR reports Clinton's campaign announced Wednesday she will appear at an event in Minneapolis on Dec. 15, albeit no more details have been released at this stage.

The visit, they said, is intended to help Clinton "continue building her grassroots network in Minnesota" ahead of Minnesota's DFL precinct caucuses on March 1.

According to the Pioneer Press, the campaign said that during her visit she'll look to garner support by discussing "the issues that keep Minnesotans up at night and how she'll address them."

Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Keith Downey put out a statement regarding Clinton's upcoming visit, saying she's "very unpopular with independents."

Clinton was last in Minnesota in August, when she attended a Democratic National Committee meeting.

The Star Tribune notes her main competition in Minnesota will be Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was also in town for the DNC meeting in August and gave a speech before more than 2,000 people in the Twin Cities back in May.

But Clinton has secured endorsements from several high-profile Minnesota Democrats, including Gov. Mark Dayton and Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, according to MPR.

The last Republican presidential candidate to make a stop in Minnesota was Rand Paul, who spoke in Duluth, the Twin Cities, Rochester and Orono on a visit earlier this month. His fellow hopeful, Jeb Bush, has lined up a Dec. 2 visit to Minneapolis.
