Bush visits Twin Cities, plans to target undecided swing voters

Republican presidential candidate Texas Gov. George W. Bush will be in the Twin Cities to address undecided swing voters.
With Minnesota suddenly a swing state, Republican officials have been trying to fit in a visit by the governor.
Today Bush will hold Victory 2000 rallies at 12:30 p.m. at the Sun Country Airline Hangar at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport, and in the early evening at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.
Bush, who is slightly ahead in the polls, follows up last night’s visit by Green Party candidate Ralph Nader and Saturday’s rally for Democrat Vice President Al Gore.
The fact that the candidates are even coming to Minnesota with less than one week to go before the election indicates how vital the state is to a win in either direction.
For nine of the past 10 presidential elections, state voters have chosen Democrats, but with polls showing a statistical dead heat between Bush and Gore — the closest presidential election in 40 years — every vote matters.
For more information on the Twin Cities rally, voters can call (651) 681-3900.
