President Trump is expected to be joined by other Minnesota Republican candidates at Rochester International Airport on Friday, October 30th. The event is scheduled for 5 p.m. with doors opening at 2 p.m.
There have not been many details released about what Trump will speak on, but those who would like to attend the event can get two tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis on the rally's event page. Expected topics include the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the economy, and the coronavirus.
The President visited Rochester for a rally in 2018 where he spoke on the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh, who was confirmed two days later. Trump was the first sitting President to visit Rochester since George W. Bush did in 2002 to campaign for Norm Coleman.
Roughly 5,000 people attended the rally at a packed Mayo Civic Center in 2018.
Back in August, Trump made a campaign stop in Mankato, showing that the Trump camp does believe that Minnesota is in play during the 2020 President Election. The last Republican to win Minnesota was Richard Nixon in 1972.
