An event billed as a Hotdish House Party in Hermantown was canceled Monday afternoon after Sen. Amy Klobuchar dropped out of the presidential race.

In the run-up to Super Tuesday, presidential candidates’ campaigns are in high gear. Klobuchar’s daughter, Abigail Bessler, had a planned stop in Hermantown to take part in the Hotdish House Party at the home of former Minnesota House Majority Leader Tony Sertich, but after Klobuchar dropped out of the presidential race the event was canceled.

A post on the Facebook event page said, "To those who were planning on attending our Hotdish House Party in the Duluth area, our team appreciates the support you have brought to this campaign. With the recent news, we will be canceling the event. Thank you again for fighting alongside us."

Bessler’s bus tour on behalf of her mother has included stops in Edina, St. Cloud, Rochester and Edina, where she has sought to rally voters in advance of Minnesota’s primary vote Tuesday.
