Is Minnesota in Play in 2020? Donald Trump Thinks So

President Trump will be holding a campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota on Wednesday night, the latest sign that Trump believes he could win the “famously populist state” in 2020.

Trump lost Minnesota by a meager 45,000 votes in 2016, despite holding only one campaign rally in the state.

Politico reported last summer that Trump “confided to aides and state GOP officials in an Oval Office meeting that he regretted not campaigning more aggressively in Minnesota, suggesting he would have won had he held a second rally there.”

The last time a Republican presidential candidate carried Minnesota was Richard Nixon in 1972.

But organizers were forced to move Trump’s event Wednesday night to, “a larger venue as demand for tickets soared, after the president’s campaign signaled it would make a serious play for the state in 2020.” Some are taking that as a sign that times might be changing in Minnesota.

“I think his campaign and his team realize there are incredible opportunities in this state to support his agenda,” Minnesota Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan told Politico. “I do believe we will deliver our state to him in 2020.”
