Vice President Joe Biden's stop in Duluth Friday created traffic nightmares for drivers in both Duluth and Superior, Wis., reported the Duluth News Tribune.
Biden gave a speech at a rally for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign at Superior Middle School, and supporters waited outside in freezing temperatures to hear him speak, WDIO-TV reported.
On his way back to Duluth International Airport after the speech, the vice president made a stop at the Red Mug Coffeehouse in Superior and several squad cars needed to cordon off several blocks of city streets while he went inside, the newspaper reported.
Minnesota and Wisconsin have been frequented several times in the past few weeks by both the Obama and Mitt Romney campaigns.
Former President Bill Clinton rallied on behalf of Obama Tuesday at the University of Minnesota, while Romney's running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, made an unscheduled dinner stop at O'Gara's Bar and Grill in St. Paul the same day.
