Sen.

Warren is set to appear at a private house party in Concord on Friday, before holding an organizing event in Manchester on Saturday, her campaign announced. 

The visit is significant because the Massachusetts Democrat notably skipped the state during the 2018 midterms, opting instead to focus on her own Senate reelection campaign.

It's also significant because New Hampshire holds the nation's first presidential primaries, making it a crucial stop for any candidate with White House ambitions. 

Warren made a trip to multiple cities in Iowa last weekend after announcing on New Year's Eve that she formed a committee to explore a presidential run, a key step that allows her to start raising money for a White House bid. She's the first major Democrat to wade into the primary field ahead of 2020.

Several other Democrats are expected to announce decisions on presidential runs in the coming weeks and months. Julian Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development Secretary, formed an exploratory committee last month and is expected to announce his decision on Saturday. 

He's set to make a trip to New Hampshire next week.
