Trump considering Friday rally at Mankato airport

MANKATO — President Donald Trump may wedge Mankato into a jam-packed final week of campaigning, potentially holding an airport rally on Friday, sources told The Free Press Monday.

The Trump campaign hasn’t officially announced the president’s schedule past Wednesday, but the campaign has notified the Mankato Regional Airport about plans for a potential rally there sometime on Friday. It would be Trump’s second visit of the campaign to the local airport after an Aug. 17 stop that featured a lengthy speech to about 150 supporters and other invited guests.

“We heard they were trying to decide between us and Rochester,” Mankato City Manager Pat Hentges said, adding that the campaign contacted the private company that operates the airport through a contract with the city. “They’re approaching the contractor, not the city, because they’re working out of a hangar.”

Hentges said the city’s Department of Public Safety had not been contacted by the Secret Service as of Monday afternoon, something that happened about a week in advance of the August visit. But the president is making an aggressive multi-state final push for re-election, which may shorten the timeframe for planning and scheduling events.
