Even if you aren’t from Minnesota, you can still be amazed at Obama’s power to turnout a crowd. In less than 24 hours, the Target Center, arena of the Minnesota Timberwolves, sold out of tickets for Obama’s Saturday appearance. While selling out a 20,000+ capacity arena in a single day is a staggering feat itself, there is a growing wait list with 2,000+ people already on it. With the DFL estimating that between 70,000 and 75,000 people will vote in Minnesota’s Tuesday caucus, well over 25% of all of Tuesday’s voters will see Obama speak this weekend.
It’s official, more people care about Barack Obama than the Minnesota Timberwolves.
