Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has scheduled a campaign stop in Minnesota on Wednesday. Romney, a former governor from Massachusetts, will hold a campaign event in Eagan on Wednesday afternoon. He’s making the appearance with former Gov. Tim Pawlenty at the FreightMasters building in Eagan.
Romney’s visit comes two days after Rick Santorum touched down in Minnesota. Santorum made a campaign stop tonight in Luverne, MN. It will also be the day after Florida’s primary.
The GOP presidential hopefuls are making Minnesota a priority as the state’s precinct caucuses approach. The Republican Party of Minnesota will hold a nonbinding straw poll at the Feb. 7 precinct caucuses. The event will be important for candidates looking to showcase their viability but will mean little in the all-important delegate count. That’s because the straw poll will not bind the delegates at the national convention.
