enthusiasm gap update: minneapolis

Thousands of people lined up early Saturday to see President Barack Obama as he campaigns for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton.

The decidedly younger crowd snaked several blocks across the University of Minnesota campus for the 2:30 p.m. event.

The president spoke to a crowd of 6,500 at the Field House for about 30 minutes.

According to FOX 9’s Jeff Goldberg, the line appeared to be nearly a mile long. The U estimates the crowd size at the beginning of the president’s address to be around 11,000 at both the Field House and sports pavilion.

Due to rain in the forecast, the President’s rally was moved indoors. It was originally to be held on the University’s Northrop Mall, but was switched inside to the University Fieldhouse
