"The current Red Team candidate, Pete Stauber, is about as rock solid as you can get. I had the chance to meet Pete, his wife and one of his sons up in Duluth a couple weeks ago. Awesome family. I can't wait to call Pete Congressman Stauber."
Today is a big day up on "Da Range". Why? The President is coming up to talk about mining issues with some of the local hardhats. I am thinking that the corks might be flying out of the bottles at Poly Met right now. Having the President come to the back yard of where this new copper-nickel mine will be is, well, "YUGE".
President Trump may be looked upon as Fool's Gold down on the southern border right now, but with his base - he is more popular than pure titanium. When he hops on Air Force One to come to Duluth this afternoon, he will have my Congressman, Tom Emmer in tow with him. Why? In absence of a Red Team CD 8 Congressman right now, Tom Emmer has been the cheerleader for opening up this area for mining. Once we get Pete Stauber elected to be our next CD 8 Congressman, Pete will then be the on-site guy for mining issues and opportunities.
Duluth will be the hot ticket in the state today. The rally starts about 6:30 tonight. They had already sold out the auditorium they were going to have it in, so they had to change the venue to something bigger. It will be at the same huge facility we had the state convention in. It will be the epicenter for what is happening in Minnesota tonight. Since this huge facility is sold out for the event, I can't wait to see how the "lap dog" media reports on the crowd size tomorrow.
Of course, no Red Team Presidential visit would be complete without throngs of the disenchanted to jeer him. The "Resist" and Antifa lackeys will be present. What are they going to protest this time? The southern border. Anything positive about Duluth? Nope. My only hope is that local law enforcement in Duluth can keep the lid these malcontents so they don't interfere with the patriots who came up north to cheer on their President.
The Iron Range is ripe for the picking right now. President Trump did very well in the range in 2016, and Stewart Mills came within an eyelash of upending Rick Nolan. But now Nolan is out, and Stewart decided not to run again. The current Red Team candidate, Pete Stauber, is about as rock solid as you can get. I had the chance to meet Pete, his wife and one of his sons up in Duluth a couple weeks ago. Awesome family. I can't wait to call Pete Congressman Stauber.
One more thing. Some might wonder how Governor Dizzy and our President will hit it off today. Well, it seems that Dizzy won't be up there as he has a "scheduling conflict". Ya right. Too bad. Dizzy could have met someone who exhibits real leadership and courage. Unlike himself, who is owned and operated by every left-wing nut job organization in the state.
