Obama at Target Center in 2009/ Source:Star Tribune file

The White House on confirmed late Sunday that President Barack Obama has a Minnesota campaign visit on his docket.

The visit, coming in the next two months, was confirmed to the Star Tribune by an unnamed administration official. No details have been released.

The trip was first reported yesterday in the New York Times:

"President Obama is adding more fund-raisers to his schedule, traveling to Florida and Minnesota over the next six weeks...."

DFL candidate for governor Mark Dayton said the week he won the party primary that he had asked both the president and Vice President Joe Biden to visit the state to help him raise money. 

The president, who stopped in Minnesota often during his 2008 campaign, was in the state one year ago to push for health care overhaul.
