ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 9) - President Donald Trump will be making a final push in Minnesota ahead of Election Day with a campaign visit at the Rochester airport on Friday, according to the campaign.
The rally will be held at 5 p.m. The doors open to general admission at 2 p.m. This rally is the president's third campaign rally scheduled on Friday, following stops in Michigan and Wisconsin earlier in the day.
Trump last came to Minnesota for a rally in Duluth on Sept. 30. Shortly after he tested positive for COVID-19 and was hospitalized for several days. After a brief pause, the president returned to the campaign trail.
In 2016, Trump lost Minnesota by a narrow 1.5 percent margin to Hillary Clinton. Recent polls show Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a lead over Trump in Minnesota.
More than 1 million absentee ballots have already been returned statewide, according to the Minnesota Secretary of State Office. That amount is already about 40 percent of the entire voter turnout in 2016.
