A number of Democrat mayors from Minnesota endorsed President Donald Trump for a second term on Friday as Vice President Mike Pence campaigns in the state.
"Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents' jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class. We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good-paying jobs elsewhere. Today, we don't recognize the Democratic Party. It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We didnt choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us," the letter, signed by Virginia Mayor Larry Cuffe, Chisholm Mayor John Champa, Ely Mayor Chuck Novak, Two Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson, Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich and Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich, states.
"Yet, four years ago, something wonderful happened. Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States, and he stood up to China, implemented tax cuts, and fought for the working class. Now, four years later, the Iron Range is roaring back to life and for the first time in a very long time, locals are hopeful because of this President's policies and willingness to fight for us," the mayors continue. "Lifelong politicians like Joe Biden are out of touch with the working class, out of touch with what the country needs, and out of touch with those of us here on the Iron Range

The dam is breaking.
I think a growing number of elected RATS are sensing the catastrophe about to hit their party.
“...The dam is breaking....”
Yep. Some of em are finally waking up to reality.
Any of the others with half a brain cell should be able to do the same.
Great news... You’ll see more endorsement from the blue collar hard-hit towns.
Apparently people are finally starting to notice that the Dems have done nothing for the working man and woman except tax and regulate them into the poorhouse.
The dems haven’t had a decent/honest candidate at ANY level since John Kennedy, and hes the SOB that got me and mine stuck in the RVN.
New York State could be in play if the thing is pushed. Push the thing...
I really think Trump flips Minnesota this time.
Supposedly he leads in Michigan. Gestapo Gretchen is a huge asset....for Trump. I feel good about his chances of carrying Michigan again.
Let’s see how the Kenosha riots play in Wisconsin. I think he’s got an excellent shot to carry Wisconsin again.
Arizona looks good.
North Carolina it looks like he’s pulled even according to the polls (dunno if they are accurate or not).
Iowa shows Trump leading in almost all the polls. He’ll carry Iowa again.
Florida and Pennsylvania are huge.
and 2024-2028-2032-2036 etc, etc,etc.
Trump is showing the “Big Tent” GOPe phonies how its done.
The GOP needed a good kick in the ass.
Hell carry Florida. Governor DeSantis is a Trump supporter and supported by Trump. Even with a close governors race a while back and COVID, DeSantis is doing well across the board. Hell help the campaign.
If we have some mayors in Minnesota supporting Trump he has a chance of having some rallies there!!
He probably would have carried that and several other states if not for Johnson/Weld running on the Libertarian Ticket in 2016 and getting 3.28% of the popular vote. Both being former 2 term GOP governors, they siphoned a lot of votes from Trump. Without a ticket like that this time, I would expect the LP does its historical average of 3.% - .4% of the popular vote.
I’m a native Floridian and a UF grad and I still have friends there. I tend to agree with you but I just want to see us turn it on and have a healthy lead. I don’t trust Broward and Palm Beach counties one bit. Also the I-4 corridor is wishy washy. We need to get North Florida to show up bigtime again like it did last time.
Minnesota is turning red! If President Trump wins Minnesota, it will be to a landslide we will be heading.
