Family members, not candidates for final MN push

Clinton and Cruz will come to Minnesota this weekend.

But it’s not the candidates who are on Tuesday’s precinct caucus ballot, it’s their close personal relations.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, is scheduled to make stops in Duluth, Rochester, Minneapolis and St. Paul Sunday and Monday. Final event details will come later. She was in Minnesota earlier this month.

The former Secretary of State’s rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, is headed to the Iron Range for a rally on Friday morning.

Meanwhile, pastor Rafael Cruz has campaign stops on behalf of his son, Ted Cruz. The Texas senator is angling for the GOP presidential nomination.

The elder Cruz has two appearances set:

  • 3 p.m., Cowboy Jacks’s Restaurant, 2801 Southtown Dr, Bloomington
  • 7 p.m., Capstone Homes Inc., 14015 Sunfish Lake Blvd NW, Ramsey
