Although no specific details have been released, President Trump reportedly will make a stop in Mankato on Monday. Hamline University political science professor David Schultz says the President believes Minnesota is in play in November.
“Some recent polls say Joe Biden only has a three to a four-point lead in Minnesota,” said Schultz. “And if Trump doesn’t win the state he forces Democrats to defend the state more than they planned on, and for every extra dollar they have to spend in Minnesota, it’s one less dollar they have to spend in other battleground states so strategically it’s a smart move.”
The last Republican to win Minnesota in a Presidential election was Richard Nixon in 1972.
