Bernie Sanders to campaign for Hillary Clinton in Minnesota
September 30, 2016 — 12:35pm
Bernie Sanders, who won Minnesota's presidential caucuses earlier this year, will visit the state next week to campaign for Hillary Clinton, his one-time rival, after recent polling showed her lead in Minnesota narrowing.
The Vermont senator on Tuesday will attend rallies in Minneapolis and Duluth, two cities where he enjoyed strong support among millennials, a constituency Clinton is now targeting as the general election nears.
Since endorsing Clinton, Sanders has served as key surrogate against Republican nominee, Donald Trump.
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."
