President Bill Clinton was in Duluth on Nov. 4, 1994. Eyewitness News’ Colleen Mahoney interviewed three Duluth gawkers who were hanging out across the street from the Downtown Holiday Inn, where the president spent the night. One of the two unnamed UMD students interviewed was future Duluth Mayor Don Ness.
Clinton was in Duluth to stump for Ann Wynia, Minnesota’s DFL candidate for U.S. Senate. She ultimately lost to Rod Grams.
Clinton’s agenda for the day included a 3.5-mile run on Skyline Parkway from Twin Ponds to about 40th Avenue West. The Wynia rally was held at UMD’s Romano Gym.
