At least six Democratic mayors are reported to have broken with the party and endorsed President Donald Trump, according The Blaze.
The open letter was endorsed by Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich, Chisholm Mayor John Champa, Ely Mayor Chuck Novak, Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich, Two Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson, and Virginia Mayor Larry Cuffe.
The letter began: "As Greater Minnesota Mayors from Democratic cities on the Iron Range of Minnesota, we write today to formally endorse the re-election of President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents' jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country."
"By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class," the scathing letter continued. "We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good paying jobs elsewhere."
The Minnesota mayors agreed that the Democratic Party is unrecognizable in 2020, adding that it no longer represents the working class.
“Today, we don't recognize the Democratic Party," the letter stated. "It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats."
"We didn't choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us," the mayors noted. "Yet, four years ago, something wonderful happened. Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States, and he stood up to China, implemented tax cuts and fought for the working class."
The letter continued by addressing the idea that Democratic nominee Joe Biden is out of touch with many of the people in the Midwest, more specifically in Minnesota.
“Now, four years later, the Iron Range is roaring back to life and for the first time in a very long time, locals are hopeful because of this President's policies and willingness to fight for us," the letter added. "Lifelong politicians like Joe Biden are out of touch with the working class, out of touch with what the country needs, and out of touch with those of us here on the Iron Range and in small towns like ours across our nation."
"In this election, there is a lot at stake, but the biggest risk is our jobs, our economy, and our way of life," the letter continued.
"President Trump delivered the best economy in our nation's history, and President Trump will deliver for us again. He will continue to fight for every American, regardless of party affiliation and continue to stand up for the working class. Today, we write to formally endorse President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for four more years."
