Jill Biden to campaign in Minnesota (Huh?)
Minnesota Public Radio ^ | October 13, 2012 | Tom Scheck

Posted on 10/13/2012 5:56:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will campaign in Minnesota next week.

Events aren't finalized but a Democratic official says Biden will campaign in Minneapolis and Duluth on Oct. 19 and Oct. 20. This will be Jill Biden's second campaign stop in Minnesota since Labor Day.

The announcement comes on the same day that Paul Ryan, the Republican nominee for Vice President, is scheduled to hold a private fundraiser in Minneapolis. Guests are being asked to give at least $1,000 to attend the event. Couples who give $25,000 can attend a private dinner with Ryan.

Ryan has no public events scheduled in the state - a signal that Minnesota may be losing the swing state status it gained in prior election cycles.

Mitt Romney held a private fundraiser in Minnesota in August but held no public events.

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign has made several stops in the state. President Obama last campaigned here in June and Vice President Biden campaigned in Minneapolis and St. Paul in August.

Campaigning in Minnesota is bad news for the Obozo campaign..something is up..I never understood why Minnesota is a Dem state..they elected Michelle Bachmann but won’t elect Mitt Romney? Hopefully Jill Biden campaigning in MN means they don’t have that state in the bag

LOL. He’s in more trouble than they want to admit. Obama is spending money on ads here in New Jersey.

Obviously, their internal polls are signalling some serious issues in that state. NMB poll showed Romney creaming Obama with Independents.

Michele represents my district which does NOT include Minneapolis or St.Paul. Like most states, the parasites infest the cities. Unfortunately, there’s more of them than those of us in outlying conservative areas.

If you hear they are coming to Michigan also this will be really great news.

Its kind of like here in California..you take out San Francisco and Los Angeles and the rest is pretty Conservative. I live in LA so I am stuck here amongst the liberal loons..but oddly enough, not ONE Obama sign in sight..but I still see some Obama stickers showing up every once in a while, which makes me gag, but this is LA after all

Well I have been told that Christie is popular in the state.
So it proves to the average Jerseyan (non-conservative)that the world didn't end with a tough GOP’er in the state house who takes on the unions, etc. So maybe Jersey is in play for Romney also.

“LOL. He’s in more trouble than they want to admit. Obama is spending money on ads here in New Jersey.”

Any chance those ads are designed to bleed into Pennsylvania? I can’t believe O is worried about Jersey, no matter how much trouble he’s in.

I read today that Bill Clinton was in Detroit so that might say something about Michigan being in play

If there is any deep deep blue state that Romney can win it is New Jersey.

He was here for Debbie Stabenow fund raiser. Limited audience to supporters.

I have seen where Obama was up 22 in California and that is down to 14. I have my fingers crossed that we will be in play before this is over.

I live in Southern Minnesota. Problem is the Twin cities and Duluth. The DFL steals elections. Look at the Franken debacle. Coleman WON that race until he didn't. Down here people are OK. Lot's of Republicans. Duluth is full of communists.

I saw a poll that Romney is up HUGE with Independent voters here in CA but unfortunately because the two largest cities are so full of liberal loons it doesn’t matter..Oh just saw a twitter post with Paul Ryan leaving in his motorcade in Minnesota right now, don’t know if it was for a fundraiser or a campaign event

We are both in the same district. Nice you have you here ;)

The 6th holds almost all of the suburbs that tend to vote to the right. They did it that way to keep the inner city districts far to the left.

The thing that makes me hopeful is Obama is only at 53%. With gas prices still fresh in e eryones mind it could happen.

" Obama stickers showing up every once in a while "

Might want to put your eye glasses on and make sure those Obama bumper stickers are not from 2008.
Here where I live I only see a few new 2012 Obama bumper stickers.
This is Obamaville of the east coast.

I hope so. I guess we’ll see in a couple of weeks. They were pretty busy stealing the senate seat.

At my Mom's nursing home in upstate NY an Obama commercial came on and all of the seniors started yelling and waving at the tv like “get it off!” My mother had the remote and muted it and said “calm down it's only a commercial and will be over soon”! A man that hasn't said two words in 6 months yelled out in broken English “I don't like Communists!”

When my Mom told me the story, I said “who is this man that said I don't like Communists”? She said that she didn't really know, she only knew he was there when she got there and was Hungarian. He never said much and she didn't know if he had Alzheimer's or what. A nurse over heard us and said he had grown up in Hungary, got out and came to the US in the 1960’s and had been an Economics Professor! Even in his golden years, he recognizes a Communist when he sees one!

We had a Hungarian family behind us in California when I was a kid. They didn’t like leftists, either and adored my dad because he’d fought the communists in Korea and Vietnam.

If Obama is in danger of losing Minnesota, he must really be tanking. But then most of my opinion of Minnesota has been formed by the Twin Cesspools.

Duluth is full of communists.

Gus Hall is originally from the Duluth area.

I’ve seen Romney ads on TV here in the past week. I was shocked! The democrats must have honest polling that tells them they’re in trouble here.
