Paul Ryan, the Republican nominee for Vice President, will campaign in Minnesota on Sunday.
The Romney campaign is sending out an e-mail about the event to supporters. It was also confirmed by a top Republican official in Minnesota who has knowledge of the event. Ryan will hold a campaign rally at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport at 3:30 on Sunday afternoon.
The event comes just two days before Election Day and shows the importance the Romney campaign is putting on Minnesota.
Recent polls show President Obama with a lead in the state but Romney’s campaign and other Minnesota Republicans have argued that the race is tightening.
Ryan had a private dinner in St. Paul on Tuesday after he held a campaign event in Hudson, Wisconsin. He also held a private fundraiser in the state earlier this month.
Ryan isn’t the only once campaigning for Minnesota votes. Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to campaign in Superior, WI on Friday. An event that will be covered by reporters in both Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Former President Bill Clinton also held campaign events in Minneapolis and Duluth earlier this week for President Obama.
A Republican presidential candidate has not won Minnesota since 1972.
