The Massachusetts senator spoke to thousands of people who gathered at Macalester College in St. Paul, one of the most attended events of the campaign so far, according to Warren's staff at the event.

"This is our moment in American history," Warren said. "This is our time to decide where this country goes."

The candidate spoke about plans to reform immigration and healthcare. Warren did not take questions from the audience, but did stick around after the speech to take photos with supporters.

"She did a nice job inspiring the crowd," said TJ Yocum of South St. Paul, who attended the rally with his 8-year-old daughter. "I think big ideas are what we need."

Warren's appearance in Minnesota comes hours after a Native American forum in Iowa, where the candidate apologized for her past claims to tribal ancestry.

Warren's campaign also announced an additional stop in Minnesota. The candidate will lead a criminal justice reform roundtable in Minneapolis on Tuesday morning.
