During the virtual event, the women discussed Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden's plans to prioritize healthcare, education and veterans, if elected.

“He would be a president not just for Democrats, but a president for all Americans and that's really what we need right now—someone that's willing to talk with everyone, to work across the aisle, to really support bipartisan efforts within the senate and the house and lead this country the way it should be led,” McCain said.

McCain said their goal was to appeal to voters at large, but also, to appeal to suburban women or women that may be on the fence.

This comes just over a week after a "Women for Trump" event was held in Duluth.

A spokesperson for the Republican National Convention provided a statement about the "Minnesota Women for Biden", event saying in part: "While President Trump campaigns on four years of promises kept and the great American comeback, Joe Biden promises an administration riddled with the same failed policies that make up his 47 year career in Washington. For Minnesotans, the choice couldn't be clearer."

The presidential election is just two weeks away.
