Minnesota is a traditional battleground state that continues to be critical to building progressive power. In many ways Minnesota represents the rest of the United States—rural and urban populations, both of which have rapidly changing demographics, increasingly progressive governance, and communities still battling the vestiges of white supremacy as can be seen with George Floyd’s tragic murder. And yet, people have taken to the streets despite COVID-19 to demand justice. This on top of the state’s electoral history: Clinton’s narrow win in the 2016 presidential election followed by unprecedented voter turnout in 2018—the highest in the nation—made for a well-resourced contest for the state’s 10 electoral votes in 2020. Despite recent Democratic victories, Minnesota is a purple state with highly persuadable voters, and with the only divided legislature in the country, must continue the fight for progressive power.
