FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Hoosiers can expect to see many presidential candidates stopping in Indiana.
Elizabeth Warren participated in a town hall in Fort Wayne Wednesday.
She was the first Democrat running for president to campaign in Indiana, making a stop in Elkhart earlier in the day.
During the town hall which aired on MSNBC, Warren said she picked Fort Wayne because of our economy.
"People in Indiana understand jobs. They understand how you build an economy that doesn't work for just a slim slice at the top," the senator from Massachusetts said.
Warren is on a campaign trip across the industrial Midwest with stops in Michigan this week.
Purdue University Fort Wayne political science professor Mike Wolf said people can expect to see more presidential candidates stopping in Indiana.
"This has been an important breaker in the nomination contest for both the democrats and the republicans, the Democrats in 2008 and Republicans in 2016," Wolf said.
Former President Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton made campaign stops in northeast Indiana leading up to the 2008 primary election. President Donald Trump held a rally at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum as he ran in 2016.
Wednesday's town hall is one of many that Democratic candidates will participate in on MSNBC.
South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg will participate in one from California.
MSNBC will also host the first Democratic debate later June 26-27.
