Minneapolis-Saint Paul__My first day at Minneapolis and St. Paul was quite exciting. I even got a glimpse of the Xcel Energy Center where the 2008 Republican National Convention is going to be held. I took a tour around town after I went to go retrieve press credentials. As I looked around the town, there were numerous “Obama 08” signs planted on residents’ front yards. I saw only one “McCain For President” sign, and it was a bumper sticker on someone’s car. In addition, I spotted an “Al Franken for U.S. Senate” sign.
What does that say about the state of Minnesota? Well according to a recent from Pollster, Senator Obama is leading by seven points over Senator McCain here. But anything can change from now until November, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
