Mike Bloomberg opening five more field offices in Minnesota

The Democrat is making a big play for Super Tuesday states, including MN.

Former New York mayor and current presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is getting serious about Minnesota. 

The Democrat's campaign has just announced the opening of five additional field offices in the state, bringing the total number to six. 

In a Friday press release, the campaign notes that Minnesota is a key Super Tuesday state, "and a priority for Mike Bloomberg 2020."

To open "over the next several days," the offices will stretch Bloomberg's presence in the state from south to north. According to an email from the campaign, the new locations are:

  • St. Paul field office: 162 Dale Street, North St. Paul, MN 
  • Minneapolis/Anthony field office: 2900 Pentagon Drive, St. Anthony, MN 
  • Rochester field office: 1139 6th Street NW, Suite 108, Rochester, MN 
  • Hopkins field office: 415 17th Avenue North, Hopkins, MN 
  • Duluth field office: 402 W 1st Street, Suite 101, Duluth, MN 

There's also Bloomberg's Minnesota headquarters, which opened last month on 1st Ave. in downtown Minneapolis

At the time, KARE 11 noted that the campaign planned to open eight Minnesota offices in all; it's not clear from Friday's announcement if that's still the plan, but the campaign does tease an opening in the Fargo-Moorhead area. 

To mark the expansion, Bloomberg senior advisor Tim O'Brien will be making stops at the field offices in St. Paul, Duluth and Rochester on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, respectively. 

At each event, O'Brien will "meet with local supporters and share Mike Bloomberg’s strategy to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America," the press release says. 

The candidate himself has already paid two visits to Minnesota, with both happening last month. His first trip featured a stop at a soybean farm in Wells, southern Minnesota, and his second included multiple stops in Minneapolis. 

His latest play in Minnesota is part of a wider strategy to court voters ahead of Super Tuesday, March 3, when 15 states will have their say in deciding the Democratic presidential nominee. 

His efforts include an expansive opening of field offices in Texas and a $100 million ad buy across multiple Super Tuesday states.
