Barack Obama said he intends to campaign in Minnesota before election day. Obama held a rally before a crowd of 15,000 people in La Crosse, Wisconsin this morning. After the speech, Obama said he wasn't taking Minnesota for granted. He said he's been focusing his efforts in Virginia and North Carolina - states that typically don't vote for Democratic presidential candidates.
"It is probably true that in September we've been spending more time in those states. In October, we'll make sure to get to Minnesota. We'll make sure that we're campaigning actively because I think the people of Minnesota want change as desperately as everywhere else."
Obama didn't specify when the campaign visit would take place.
Note: I'll post Obama's speech when I return from La Crosse, WI.
