President Barack Obama pitched his ideas to boost the American middle class while here in Minnesota, a state that already has embraced a key component of the president's economic agenda by moving to raise the minimum wage.
Obama closed a two-day trip to the Minneapolis area on Friday with a speech on the economy at a castle-shaped bandshell on picturesque Lake Harriet.
