Life Time Minnesota Rural Democrats Are Voting for Trump Claiming the Democratic Party Has Left Us

“Ask Larry Cuffe why, after decades of voting for Democrats, he voted for Donald Trump four years ago, and he’ll talk about his distrust of Hillary Clinton and the need to get northern Minnesota’s mines back to work.

Ask the former police officer why he’s sticking with Trump in 2020, and the list is very much longer.

‘The Democratic Party left us. Even in the past four years, it’s changed so much. Supporting people who riot? Defunding the police? That’s crazy. I think a lot of us up here are Democrats in Republican clothing now,” he said.

Cuffe, who twice voted for Barack Obama, is one of six mayors from a stretch of Minnesota mining country, known as the Iron Range, who turned their back on the Democratic party and signed a joint letter endorsing Trump even as the state is swinging behind the president’s opponent, Joe Biden.

After decades of voting for Democrats, the mayors said that they no longer regarded the party as advocating for workers.’

‘Lifelong politicians like Joe Biden are out of touch with the working class, out of touch with what the country needs, and out of touch with those of us here on the Iron Range and in small towns like ours across our nation,’ they said”, the Guardian reports.   [We made some grammar editing to this article]

We would add that suburbs of the twin cities and other rural areas are echoing these thoughts. Whether the suburbs and rural voters across the state have the votes to defeat the radical voters (not all) from Minneapolis and St. Paul’s core cities is the issue.

We know rural and suburban voters need to vote in record numbers to defeat the socialist agendas of Biden and Harris.

    Duluth, Minn. — The fourth installment in the Energy Institute’s Energy Accountability Series details the devastating economic impacts that America could face if the “Keep in in the Ground” movement succeeded in banning hydraulic fracturing for oil and natural gas.
    Millions of dollars and tons of jobs would likely be lost in the Duluth and surrounding area.
    What If Hydraulic Fracturing Was Banned?”
    The answer? By 2022, 14.8 million jobs could be lost, gasoline prices and electricity prices could almost double, and each American family could see their cost of living increase by nearly $4,000.
    “It’s easy for politicians and activists to call for an end to hydraulic fracturing—but now we know what the consequences could be,” said Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy. “Without fracking, the U.S. would surrender our status as a global energy superpower. Every American family could face higher prices for the energy they consume and the products and services they buy, and almost 15 million Americans could be out of work. These extreme and irresponsible proposals should not be considered. Ignorance can no longer be an excuse.”
    Additionally, the Energy Institute’s report looks specifically at the economic impacts of a fracking ban on Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas. In all these states, the impact could be severe. 1.6 million Texans could lose their jobs, while Pennsylvania could lose $50 billion a year in state GDP. Colorado could lose 215,000 jobs, and the average Ohio household could see costs rise by $4,000 a year.
    “While on its face, ‘keep it in the ground’ policies are intended to punish the energy industry, in reality they punish the entire economy,” said Harbert. “Bringing back energy scarcity means higher energy prices for everyone. Beyond that, banning fracking would make America much more reliant on foreign sources of energy, weakening our national security.”
    The mission of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy is to unify policymakers, regulators, business leaders, and the American public behind a common-sense energy strategy to help keep America secure, prosperous, and clean.
    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations, Global Energy Institute reports.
