"Steve Wenzel served nearly three decades in the Minnesota Legislature as a Democrat, inspired by party icons like former President John F. Kennedy and Vice President Hubert Humphrey. But this week he is supporting President Donald Trump as a delegate to the virtual Republican National Convention. The Little Falls resident also participated in the 2016 Republican convention but headed into that gathering wary of Trump." ("Trump supporters eye disenchanted Democrats in greater Minnesota."
