SALT LAKE CITY — Another Democratic presidential candidate is coming to Utah — Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Klobuchar is scheduled to hold a rally at The Depot in Salt Lake City starting at 9 a.m. Monday, the day before Utah’s Super Tuesday Democratic presidential primary. Doors are set to open at 8:15 a.m. and people can sign up to attend at https://www.mobilize.us/amyklobuchar/event/254596/.

She follows other Democratic candidates who have campaign stops in Utah, including former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who’s been here twice in recent weeks, and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who attracted a crowd of 4,500 to The Union in Salt Lake City on Presidents Day.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is also holding a rally Monday in Salt Lake City, at noon at the Utah State Fairpark,

Sanders, the front-runner nationally, is leading in a new Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll with the support of 28% of likely Utah Super Tuesday Democratic primary voters, followed by Bloomberg with 19%, Buttigieg with 18%, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who held a rally at The Depot last April, with 15%

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who held a private fundraiser in Park City late last year, was the pick of 6% in the poll, while 4% said they were voting for Klobuchar. Her first appearance in the state is described as a chance to “hear about her plans to beat Donald Trump, unite our country and get us back on the path to progress.”
