On Saturday, October 17, she held drive-in rallies in Madison and in Milwaukee at the Steamfitters Local 601 Union Hall, WISN reported. She said she preferred drive-in rallies because they were safer during a pandemic. She told WISN:
As important as politics are, people’s health is even more important. And it is our responsibility to each other not to spread this virus, not to spread it so people take it home to their grandparents, to their kids, to their cousins, and their neighbors. We are the people who believe in each other and the importance of taking care of each other.”
For both of her Saturday rallies, attendees stayed in their cars and listened to her speech via their radios. Here are a few crowd photos from that rally, shared by Winnie Marie of 58 NEWS CBS.

Star Tribune reported that in addition to Brooklyn Park, she also visited Northfield and St. Paul’s Macalester College on the same day. All the rallies were socially distanced and held outdoors.
According to Star Tribune, 125 students attended the Macalester rally. She told the crowd: “When I watch Donald Trump as he tries to run for re-election by just openly behaving as a racist … I think about what Joe Biden says, that this is a fight for the soul of our nation.”
Here are additional crowd photos from the Macalester rally, shared on Twitter.
