    Vice presidential candidate Gov. Mike Pence, R-Ind., introduces Donald Trump before a speech on healthcare, Nov. 1, 2016, in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

    Donald Trump and Mike Pence will both be spending time in traditionally blue Minnesota during the closing days of the campaign, NBC News reported.

    Minnesota, which President Obama won by eight points in 2012, has not seen much action this campaign and is considered by NBC News as leaning Democrat. A Star Tribune Minnesota Poll released last week showed Clinton with an eight-point lead.

    "We're going up to Minnesota which, traditionally has not been Republican at all. And we're doing phenomenally. We just saw a poll," Trump announced during a rally in Florida on Saturday.

    The campaign stop would be Trump's first public appearance in the Gopher State during the general election. He finished a distant third behind Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz during the GOP primary.
