Trump on the campaign Trail

Trump will hold a campaign rally in Duluth, Minn. today, the first time the president has held such an event in a state that he lost in 2016.

Trump didn’t lose Minnesota by much – Clinton carried the state by 1.5 points and he won the 8th District, which is presently held by a retiring Democratic House member, by 16 points.

There will also be two Senate races in Minnesota this year, including a special election to replace Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who resigned amid allegations he mistreated women. Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.), who was appointed to replace Franken, is running to finish out the remaining two years of his term.

The Cook Political report has Smith’s seat rated as “leans” Democratic and Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) seat as “solidly” Democratic. The House race to replace retiring Rep. Rick Nolan (D) is rated as a toss-up.

Trump will make his second stop in a state that he lost in 2016 on Saturday, when he stumps for Sen. Dean Heller (R) in Nevada. Heller is among the most vulnerable Republicans up for reelection in the Senate.
