Officials who let Minneapolis burn try to restrict Trump Rally in Minnesota

 Washington Examiner:

President Trump's reelection campaign slammed "free speech stifling dictates" in Minnesota that will limit attendance at a Friday evening rally, billing the move as a partisan shot by the state's Democratic leadership.

"Trump will be speaking to the people assembled there, but he will also be speaking directly to every citizen who lives in one of these Democratic lockdown states," Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh told reporters on a call.

"Now, the president wants everyone to be safe and take precautions, but he knows that we need to keep reopening America. Biden represents lockdown, along with the Democratic governors in the states," he added.

The Trump campaign lashed out at Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison, both Democrats, late Thursday over directives to restrict attendance at the Friday rally.

 The notice came after Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden announced a socially distanced drive-in rally in St. Paul at 3:30 p.m., 90 minutes before the start of Trump’s event, his fourth campaign visit to the state this year.

"Without question, Minnesota Democrats had hoped the president would simply cancel the event, but he will not allow partisan politicians to deprive people of their First Amendment rights to gather peacefully to hear directly from the president," said Republican nominee for Minnesota's 7th Congressional District Michelle Fischbach.

"Biden is playing defense in a state won by Hillary Clinton," Murtaugh added. Trump came close to winning the state in 2016, missing by about 40,000 votes.

Fischbach said on the call that Biden's last-minute campaign stop to a state that "Democrats have safely held for nearly half a century ... should tell you everything you need to know about the state of this race."

The Democrat politicians limited attendance inside the gate of the airport to 250.  Literally, thousands of people from all over the state were standing in the cold outside the gate cheering for the President.  A woman from Minneapolis was the one who said the Governor and the AG let the city burn. I think Trump has a good chance in Minnesota.  The incumbent Democrat Senator is only polling in the low to mid 40's as she runs for reelection.  I think many of the voters are pretty disgusted with the Democrat leadership in the state.  There is a good chance that Minnesota will "go red."
