Campaigning in Florida, where he appears to be running neck-and-neck with Hillary Clinton, Trump plans to head to Minnesota in the final three days of the campaign. Trump was already scheduled to hunt for votes in Nevada and Colorado later Saturday, states that have been leaning in Clinton’s direction for weeks but may be tightening as Trump sees his chances rise in national polls. He’ll also campaign in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Minnesota hasn’t cast its electoral votes for a Republican since 1972. A Republican hasn’t won Michigan or Pennsylvania since 1988.
“We’re going into what they used to call Democrat strongholds, where we’re now either tied or leading,” he told a rowdy crowd at a rally in Tampa. “We’re going to Minnesota, which traditionally has not been Republican at all.” Public polls from earlier this fall found a comfortable lead for Clinton in Minnesota.
