With huge cash flow under its belt, Trump’s campaign is targeting riot-ridden Minnesota, which has not sided with a GOP nominee since 1972.

Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien said the campaign raised $26 million on Thursday, around the time of the presidential debate, and pulled 30 percent more digitally than any previous 24-hour cycle, according to The Hill.

“October is already Trump Victory’s biggest online fundraising month ever,” the campaign declared in an email, Fox News said.

The campaign said Minnesota was first in line for the ad blitz campaign. In 2016, Trump lost the state by 45,000 votes.

“The new purchase is going to be a strong purchase. I’m stressing hard, “said Stepien.

“You’re not going to be able to turn on the TV without seeing a Trump commercial.”

The campaign also sends 60 staff members to the state to follow up on these advertisements.

“Our ground game is another part of why we feel so good … those 60 workers are knocking on doors, getting ballots back and giving us increased confidence,” Stepien said.

Do you think President Trump is going to win Minnesota?

“We now have strong air cover for the troops who have been protecting the state for the last two years. Joe Biden’s been advertising a lot of TV commercials. He doesn’t have something on the field. We are now providing additional air cover to the people who have made sure that the ballots sent, those voted early, are returned and put the President in a position to win on election day, “he additional.

Furthermore, Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Minnesota on Monday to gather support there, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Earlier this fall, Minnesota Republican Senate candidate Jason Lewis said that even a state with such a liberal track record as Minnesota is shifting ground.

“This is the kind of microcosm of the whole world. When urban liberals get a little bit more wild, they push everybody else into Trump’s country and the Red Country, “Lewis said to” Fox & Friends.

Lewis thinks Trump’s chances of winning the state are still improving.

“And particularly because Donald Trump did the most important thing he could for the GOP, and brought the working man and the woman back to the party,” he said.

Lewis said the law and order message Republicans are promoting resonates with the electorate after a summer of riots.

“I think we’re going to win, and I think the President is going to win,” Lewis said.

Others say that the Democrats handed the state over to Trump.

“The Democratic Party has abandoned us. It’s changed so much in the last four years. Supporting people who are rioting? Defunding the cops? That’s nuts. I think all of us up here are Democrats in Republican clothing now, “Larry Cuffe, Mayor of Virginia, Minnesota, told The Guardian.

In August, Cuffe, along with five other long-standing Democratic mayors from the North Star Province, signed a letter declaring their support for Trump.

“As many in our country, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We’ve seen our constituents’ jobs leave not just the Iron Range, but our country. By imposing tariffs on our goods and endorsing poor trade agreements, politicians like Joe Biden did little to help the working class. We’ve lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range to provide their families with well-paid jobs elsewhere, “the mayors wrote.

“We don’t accept the Democratic Party today. It has been pushed to the left so far that it can no longer pretend to be the advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans who built their lives and helped their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We haven’t decided to quit the Political Party, the Party has abandoned us.
