Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden elbow bumps Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., after he spoke at a union training center in Hermantown, Minn., Friday, Sept. 18, 2020.

Hours before President Donald Trump's rally in Bemid­ji on Friday, Democratic challenger Joe Biden flew to Duluth to meet with union members who could be a bulwark of DFL support in an increasingly Republican swath of northern Minnesota.

President Trump invited up five Republican nominees for Congress to stand behind him during the last ten minutes of his speech on Friday.

While Biden met with a handful of labor leaders at the Jerry Alander Carpenter Training Center in Hermantown, the Trump campaign organized a large airport rally in Bemidji, an area that supported him overwhelmingly in 2016, though he narrowly lost the state to Hillary Clinton.

Biden's carefully choreographed small group encounter required face masks and marked places to sit and stand to ensure social distancing; Trump's boisterous outdoor rally brought together a crowd of several thousand, most of them not wearing masks.
