MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin is the featured attraction as Minnesota Democrats gather for their top fundraising event of the year.

The annual Humphrey-Mondale dinner on Saturday is expected to bring the party a half-million dollars. It starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Baldwin is the first openly gay U.S. senator.

Another Wisconsin senator, Ron Johnson, headlined Minnesota Republicans’ big fundraiser earlier this spring.
