Clinton to campaign in Duluth; doors open 12:30 p.m. Tuesday (Minnesota)
Duluth News ^

Posted on 10/29/2012 9:55:31 PM PDT by Arthurio

Former president Bill Clinton is slated to visit the University of Minnesota Duluth campus Tuesday afternoon, making his first return visit to Duluth since Nov. 4, 1994.

During his prior stop in Duluth, President Clinton went for a morning jog on Skyline Parkway with then-mayor Gary Doty and stumped at UMD for Ann Wynia in her unsuccessful congressional bid. She ultimately lost that race to Sen. Rod Grams.

This time around, Clinton will lend his support to the campaigns of fellow Democrats including former Congressman Rick Nolan, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and President Barack Obama.

A recent Star Tribune poll showed President Obama in a tightening race with his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. It indicated Obama’s lead in Minnesota had shrunk to 3 points — a narrow spread that falls within the poll’s 3.5 percent margin of error.

UMD’s Kirby Ballroom will host the event, with doors set to open at 12:30 p.m. No tickets will be required, and admission will be granted on a first-come basis. The ballroom’s maximum capacity is 750 people.

Ben Dufault, president of UMD’s College Democrats, expects the visit will energize the campus.

He observed that many young voters have been less politically active this year than they were during the last presidential race.

“Generally speaking, I think a lot of people are not as enthusiastic as they were in 2008, but the closer and closer we get to the election, the more people are getting revved up,” Dufault said.

When the star of their convention and campaign, Bill Clinton, is sent to not Florida, or Colorado, or even Wisconsin, but sent instead to as until just recently “solidly Obama” Minnesota, you know the bottom is falling out of support for O.

Speaking to a bunch of dumbass college kids. No votes there to flip. They’re all already on Barry’s commie bandwagon.

I never understood/or will understand the whole attraction, allure to Clinton! It’s funny because I have friends/acquaintances who still love Clinton for some reason, even though they can’t clearly articulate why! But, they’re voting Romney this election!
I’m thinking this is the same for 2008 indie Obama voters..they voted for him the first time because it was cool, first black Pres etc.. but now the whole allure has fizzled.

Very funny and so true, rofl.

There was a time when NO Democrat wanted Slick to come anywhere near their campaign.

Desperation has set in. Those college kids are coming for the FREE PIZZA's and taking the FREE RIDE to vote early for ROMNEY. ROFL

They already took down they faded Obama poster from their ceilings.

The guy’s a shameless hustler, who’s only talent is a gift of gab. He can’t even pick ‘good talent’ to hook up with.

The UMD Marxists will be out in full force. Today’s President of the U.S. is a cut off the old Stalin bloc.

You can drive through Duluth and see Elizabeth Warren yard signs along Hwy. 61 North! Shows how nuts this city is. Yet, the need to send the sinkmaster here is telling that 0’s in for a big loss.

And you can see the occasional “Wellstone!” yard sign, carefully wrapped and preserved in plastic. It's the sign of a true believer in socialism.

” Yet, the need to send the sinkmaster here is telling that 0’s in for a big loss.”

That’s how I read it. The Duluth area was flooded with eastern European socialists via immigration in the early 20th century. If Slick needs to nail down the welfare progeny of these red flag wavers, President Buckwheat is in huge trouble.

The Bamster and the Slickster can only orate before "safe" crowds in campus, union and minority environs.

Otherwise they'd be pelted with tomatoes and booed off the stage.
