Even before she formally joined what's now a crowded field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, Warren held a fundraiserat a downtown Salt Lake City restaurant last summer.

Utah has not voted for a Democrat for president since 1964, but nearly every major candidate came to the state in 2016 before the Republican and Democratic parties' presidential preference votes during March caucus meetings.

Next year, Utah will return to holding a statewide presidential primary election, on Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Lawmakers funded the election in part to help ensure candidates will continue to pay attention to the state.
