President Barack Obama will visit Minneapolis on Monday, according to a White House official. No other details were immediately available.
Obama last visited Minnesota on June 1 when he toured Honeywell's Golden Valley plant and announced an initiative aimed at helping veterans get the credentials they need to land jobs in manufacturing and industries such as health care and trucking. He also attended a series of fundraisers in Minneapolis that day as he geared up for re-election.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
