MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – While Donald Trump does have an active campaign in Minnesota, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been more aggressive.
On Sunday, her national campaign manager, Robby Mook, was at the Minnesota State Fair.
Most pollsters have Minnesota leaning Democratic, considering the state has not voted for a Republican for president since 1972, when Richard Nixon was re-elected.
But Clinton was beaten badly here by Bernie Sanders in the caucuses, and the Clinton campaign insists Clinton is not taking Minnesota for granted.
“We feel great about how we are doing here, we feel great about the organization, and I have been seeing lots of enthusiastic volunteers,” Mook said.
The Clinton campaign also has its eyes on two neighboring states that share media markets with Minnesota: Wisconsin and Iowa. Both are considered key swing states.
In Wisconsin right now, Clinton is ahead. In Iowa, the race is dead even.
