Donald Trump is coming to Minnesota after all.

Apparently, the Republican presidential candidate made the announcement at a rally in Tampa Saturday morning.

Trump was supposed to be visiting Wisconsin this weekend, but sources like WISN reported Saturday that he canceled.

Then the Republican Party of Minnesota made an official announcement, saying Donald Trump will be at MSP International Airport Sunday afternoon for a victory rally. Trump's website confirms the event.

The Republican has been focusing on our state as Election Day approaches, and recently told his supporters, “We can win Minnesota,” at a rally in Phoenix, Arizona – even though Minnesota hasn’t voted Republican in 44 years.

And a small band of hardcore Trump supporters have been campaigning on highway overpasses in recent weeks, the Star Tribune reported.

Analytics website FiveThirtyEight.com still has Clinton as the favorite to win Minnesota, saying she has an 80.4 percent chance of carrying the state and 64.5 percent chance of winning overall. But those numbers are down a bit from last week.

About the rally

The state's Republican Party says Trump's rally will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Sun Country hangar at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport.
