VP Pence returning to Minnesota for fundraiser

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to stop in Minnesota for a second time this month.

Minnesota GOP officials announced Monday that Pence will be headed back to the Land of 10,000 Lakes on Aug. 30 for a fundraising event in Bloomington.

Earlier this month, Pence campaigned in Duluth for Pete Stauber, who went on to win the GOP primary in the race for the seat in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District.

The 8th District is one of a number of Minnesota districts considered a toss-up in the midterm elections in November.

As such, Minnesota is a battleground state, receiving significantly more political attention than in recent years.
