The Donald Trump for President campaign announced endorsements from six mayors of six towns in cities in Minnesota’s Iron Range, signaling a newfound push on the part of the Republican President to flip the new swing state that has voted for Democrats in every presidential election since 1972 .
Mayors Larry Cuffe of Virginia, John Champa of Chisholm, Chuck Novak of Ely, Chris Swanson of Two Harbours, Robert Vlaisavljevich of Eveleth, and Andrea Zupancich of Babbit were the officials endorsing the President.
They all govern cities that are strongly traditionally Democratic, being located on the northern coast of Minnesota, adjacent to Lake Superior. The mayors cite President Trump’s pro-American worker and industrial policy, touting the President’s aggressive tariff policies as a game changer towards revitalizing manufacturing in the area and allowing businesses in their communities to compete with China.
The announcement comes as the President arrives for a campaign stop in Duluth, Minnesota, shoring up his November prospects in the state. Recent polls have revealed a horse race in the traditionally Democratic state, which Hillary Clinton won by less than 2% in 2016.
Suburban Minnesota voters appear to be seriously questioning their long-running affiliation with the Democratic Party, especially after some of the worst riots in the history of the United States inflicted more than $55 million in property damages on the city of Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd.
Vicious Black Lives Matter mobs also appeared in suburban Hugo, Minnesota earlier this month, with a Democrat state legislative candidate urging the mob to “burn down” the community.
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
