MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Sen. Bernie Sanders brings his presidential campaign back to Minnesota just ahead of Super Tuesday.

The Democrat holds a rally in Minneapolis Monday. The event is free and open to the public. Doors to the Minneapolis Convention Center open at 10:30 a.m. Sanders was in Minnesota last week for rallies in Hibbing and Rochester.

Sanders stayed on message Sunday, offering his standard economic-focused speech to a crowd in Oklahoma City. Earlier Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press Sanders acknowledged that he was "decimated" by his opponent Hillary Clinton, who won by roughly 50 percentage points in South Carolina.

Sanders says he's looking ahead to Tuesday's contests and beyond, expressing confidence that he can remain competitive.
