President Donald Trump is reportedly looking to turn Minnesota red in the 2020 election.
NPR reports: Trump acknowledged the Democratic hold on Minnesota during a quick stop there Monday to tout his signature tax law. “This has been a very special state. It has been a rare victory for Republicans. And we almost won it,” Trump said during a visit to a trucking company in Burnsville, a suburb of Minneapolis. He said the result would have been different if he had come more often: “One more speech.” Trump used the official White House event, which lasted just over an hour, to speak to local concerns. He addressed proposed mining and pipeline projects in the north, farmers’ anxieties in the vast agricultural parts of Minnesota and simmering tensions across the state over immigration.”

President Trump is focusing on flipping states that went blue in 2016 to further bolster his electoral college chances, which are undercut by the number of Puerto Ricans moving to Florida and by Democrat efforts to win Trump’s Midwest strongholds — as evidenced by Bernie Sanders’ campaigning in the Rust Belt and Justin Amash’s speculated libertarian third-party run.
President Donald Trump is putting Virginia in play in the 2020 election, marking a Trump campaign offensive in a state carried by Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Virginia’s shift to the Blue column was exacerbated by the first Trump campaign’s unwillingness to spend lots of time or resources there. But with deep coffers and a more organized approach this time around, Trump thinks he can win the Commonwealth. Democrats in Virginia are still rocked by scandal, including governor Ralph Northam’s blackface/KKK photo, lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax’s sex assault allegations, attorney general Mark Herring’s blackface scandal, delegate Ibraheem Samirah’s anti-Semitism scandal, and the communications director of the Virginia Democrats telling black conservatives to leave the state.

“Tell them we think Virginia is in play and that I’m going to be there,” Trump said to Mike Pence as Pence headed to a Virginia fundraiser, according to Politico.
A historically black college recently canceled on a Northam event as the governor tried to organize a racial “listening tour” of the state.

Dallas County Commissioners Vote to Place Limits on Activist Judge Clay Jenkins’ MASSIVE Power Grab
On Tuesday, April 7, 2020, Dallas County commissioners voted to restrict County Judge Clay Jenkins’ emergency powers.
They argued that they were unaware of certain sensitive decisions taken by Jenkins.
These Commissioners voted to have Jenkins inform all four of commissioners and allow them to meet up before deciding to impose more restrictions on essential businesses. On top of that, they required him to obtain a majority vote before extending the shelter-in-place order beyond April 30, 2020.
Ever since March 19, Jenkins has issued a number of orders which included limits on group gatherings and a shelter-in-place order that compelled non-essential businesses and services to shut down two weeks ago.
On April 3, 2020, commissioners approved the extension of the disaster declaration until May 20. Additionally, Jenkins announced on Twitter that he would extend stay-at-home orders until April 30.
The restrictions were weakened after a four-hour meeting. Jenkins even hinted before the vote that the originally proposed restrictions were “dangerous” and would keep him from acting decisively during a pandemic.
“We’re just not going to be able to get things done if we stop and have a two- or three-hour meeting every day on things like whether or not people should solicit at your home or not,” Jenkins said before the vote took place.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, who represents a large portion of southern Dallas, declared that there’s been a “throat choke” on his constituents during the past few weeks.
Price said he was “incensed” by decisions Jenkins took unilaterally.
“If you can confer with 250 people every day, or every other day, then you can confer with us,” Price said to Jenkins.
Price has advocated for pawn shops and check-cashing businesses to be reopened, saying people in the communities he represents would benefit from the re-opening of the economy.
Jenkins ordered on April 6, 2020 that those businesses could open up their doors provided that they implement certain social distancing policies and follow consumer protection measures laid out in his amended order.
Commissioner J.J. Koch, who put forward the amendment to restrict Jenkins’ power, said he was of the opinion that it was “prudent” for commissioners to vote on these issues together.
“It’s a little bit concerning that there are still pieces that have to be addressed this late in the game at such a rapid pace,” Koch stated. “We shouldn’t be in this place.”
Commissioner Theresa Daniel said her colleagues need to be in the loop when it comes to making decisions due to the resources they can offer.
“What I see in this is not that we are putting barricades or barriers to progress or addressing issues that must be addressed,” Daniels commented. “We agree with you and appreciate all those efforts, but we are a part of this county, we are a part of these decisions, and we have not been kept in the loop.”
