This Politico article is what happens when outsiders write about Minnesota in the context of this year’s presidential election. The first tip-off that the reporter is either ill-informed or dishonest comes when he says “Interviews with more than a dozen officials and strategists from both parties in recent days depict a state in which Joe Biden is leading, but where the president is making inroads in rural Minnesota.” That’s BS.

In 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a 54%-38% margin in Minnesota’s Eighth District. That year, In 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a 61%-31% margin in Minnesota’s 7th District. Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a 52%-38% margin in Minnesota’s First District. Finally, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a 59%-38% margin in Minnesota’s Sixth District.

The point is that President Trump already dominates rural Minnesota. When you dominate each of the rural districts, you’re past the “making inroads” stage. I agree with the writer on this:

He’s still preoccupied with his near-miss four years later. “One more speech, I would have won,” Trump told a crowd recently in Mankato, a small college town in southern Minnesota. “It was so close.”

This time, his campaign has poured staff into the state, creating an operational footprint that Democrats only recently eclipsed. He reserved millions of dollars in TV time for a fall ad blitz, and seized on protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the state’s liberal stronghold, as a springboard for his broader law-and-order campaign.

President Trump won’t win the Twin Cities vote. He doesn’t need to, though he needs to do well in the suburbs. President Trump’s law-and-order message will play well in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the suburbs. School choice is shaping up to be the sleeper issue in the Twin Cities. If President Trump pounds that message, he’ll have a strong shot at winning Minnesota.

Next week, Joe Biden will officially accept the Democrats’ presidential nomination. The night before he accepts the Democrats’ presidential nomination, Kamala Harris will accept the nomination to be Biden’s running mate. When Biden accepts the nomination, Biden-Harris will become the first gun confiscation presidential ticket in history.

The only things that Sen. Harris hasn’t faked is her lust to be president and her lust to confiscate guns. She famously said that, if elected, she’ll “give Congress 100 days to get their act together” and pass gun control legislation for her to sign. If they don’t get that bill passed, she’ll use her executive authority to confiscate weapons:

Think about this. It isn’t just Harris that wants to confiscate guns. Biden wants to confiscate guns, too:

The easiest way to prevent Kamala Harris and Joe Biden from confiscating your firearms is to vote for President Trump. Don’t forget that Biden-Harris want to confiscate your firearms while other Democrats are voting to dismantle entire police departments or dramatically cut funding for police departments. While cities turn into open-air shooting galleries, Democrats want to strip you of your right to protect your family. What part of that sounds right with you?

Democrats frequently use the argument that hunters shouldn’t need 100-round clips. Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar are 2 of the Democrats who’ve said that recently. That’s true. Hunters don’t need those high-capacity clips. People protecting their families in Chicago, NYC or Minneapolis might find comfort om those high-capacity clips, though.

Biden told Robert Francis O’Rourke that he’d name O’Rourke as his gun czar. This is why he’d do that:

Democrats are fast turning into the party that confiscates guns and dismantling police departments. They’re homeland security nightmares.
