Elizabeth Warren makes first campaign stop in Minnesota

Warren spent nearly an hour on stage, highlighting some of the issues on which she plans to focus, including complete healthcare coverage and putting an end to big money influencing politics.

"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."

The stop at Macalester followed a visit to Sioux City, Iowa, during which Warren offered a public apology to Native Americans over her past claim to tribal heritage, directly tackling an area that's proved to be a big political liability.

"Like anyone who has been honest with themselves, I know I have made mistakes," Warren said at a forum on Native American issues in this pivotal early voting state. "I am sorry for the harm I have caused."

During her event at Macalester, Warren said she would be making another appearance in Minneapolis Tuesday.

She will visit Better Futures Minnesota and will participate in a roundtable discussion on criminal justice reform.

That event is scheduled for 11 a.m.
