Obama To Visit Minnesota Before Election

Obama in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

The New York Times is reporting President Obama is planning to visit Minnesota before the November election. The Twin Cities have been the site of several of President Obama’s big speeches. The first was his speech where he claimed the Democratic nomination at St. Paul’s Xcel center, the same place a few weeks later the Republicans would be holding their national convention to endorse John McCain. The second was at the Minneapolis Target Center which was the first of his many campaign-like appearances as part of his successful bid to reform health care

Details on the trip were not in the article, but it appears the purpose of this visit may be a fundraiser, presumably to help Democrat Terryl Clark unseat Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann or to help Mark Dayton with his campaign for Governor against Tom Emmer and Tom Horner.
