Obama has landed in Minnesota

Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger under National campaigns, Democrats, Republicans, President Obama Updated: June 26, 2014 - 12:46 PM

President Obama will land in Minnesota today at noon and stay through Friday.

Today, the president will arrive shortly after noon and participate in an invitation-only town hall at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park at 2:10 p.m.

At 7:30 p.m., he will attend a high-dollar fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at Sam and Sylvia Kaplan's Minneapolis home. The Kaplans have long been major Democratic donors and Obama appointed Sam Kaplan as U.S. ambassador to Morocco.

On Friday, Obama will speak about the economy at Minneapolis’ Lake Harriet Band Shell. The event is open to the public, but advance tickets are required.

The trip to the state will be Obama’s seventh, and his first overnight stay here as president. He also visited Minnesota three times as he campaigned for the office in 2008.
