Libertarian Gary Johnson is stopping by Minnesota on 10/27.

The governor of New Mexico is touring the United States hosting #YouIns, and he’ll be stopping at Canterbury Park in Shakopee on Thursday, a Facebook event says.

The campaign rally is a chance for people to get to know more about Johnson and his work as governor, with the Facebook event saying people can come “see why Johnson/Weld are rapidly gaining support as the sane choices for president and vice president.”

The family-friendly event is free and open to the public – you don’t have to RSVP, but are encouraged to do so. Doors open at 5 p.m., with the rally starting at 6 p.m. A cash bar will be available.

Johnson’s visit comes the same week as two other politicians plan to visit Minnesota. Green Party candidate Jill Stein is scheduled to speak at Macalester College on Wednesday, while Vice President Joe Biden will visit Duluth Friday to campaign for Democrat Hillary Clinton and Eighth Congressional District incumbent Rep. Rick Nolan, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

As for Republican Donald Trump, the Minnesota Republican Party’s website doesn’t list any events planned prior to the election.
